Public Invited to Adult Education Career Fair March 12

In today’s changing workplace and economy, new career and job opportunities are becoming available to people. Adults in the community, as well as students, may now consider some career changes that lead to new and better jobs. Northeast Alabama Community College will provide the community a chance to consider some of these career options with an Adult Education Career Fair to be held on campus on Thursday, March 12, 2009.

“We welcome anyone in the community to be with us,” stated NACC President Dr. David Campbell. “We will have someone present to explain all our career options, as well as those to provide information on financial aid, admissions, and various other college services.” Campbell noted that Northeast provides academic transfer programs leading to most any kind of job requiring a baccalaureate or professional degree. “At the same time there are now many excellent jobs that can be obtained through a certificate or associate degree, especially in technical fields,” Campbell added. “Many of these programs can be completed in a relatively short period of time, particularly the certificate programs.”

Information in career fields provided by NACC will be presented at the fair in areas including non-credit certificate programs, certificate programs, two-year associate degree programs, and transfer degree programs. A browse session and informational meeting will begin at 9:00 am with representatives from each area of interest. This event is open to the public and free of charge. This event will be held in the Workforce Development Building on the Northeast campus from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.
