The Bakersfield College Fall Career Day will be held Thursday, October 6, 2011 in the Bakersfield College Campus Center, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. The purpose of Career Day is to give Bakersfield College students the opportunity to explore a wide variety of careers and current job opportunities.

Denise Crawford of the Bakersfield College Job Placement Center says job seekers will not only meet a variety of perspective employers at the Fall Career Day, they will also be able to explore possible careers for the future.

"Students will receive information about current job openings and also future job opportunities," Crawford said. "An industry may not be hiring right now, but they may be hiring two years from now when the student is ready for full time employment."

Employers from the areas of business, human services, child care, education, corrections, healthcare, hospitality, food service, military, retail and more will be present. For more information, call the Bakersfield College Job Placement office at 395-4659.
