NORFOLK, Neb. – Northeast Community College students interested in part-time employment during the upcoming academic year are encouraged to attend a special event next month sponsored by Northeast’s Career Services Office
The annual Part-Time Job Fair will be held Tue., Aug. 31, from 3-5 p.m. in the Lifelong Learning Center on the Northeast campus in Norfolk. Employer set-up will be from 2-3 p.m.
Many Norfolk area employers will be available to visit with Northeast students about part-time employment opportunities during the 2021-22 academic year. Employers will be recruiting for a variety of positions including restaurant, retail, health, and customer service.
There is no registration charge to employers. Employers are encouraged to register for the event by August 16 through the Northeast website, northeast.edu/career-services/part-time-job-fair/register. Or they may register by calling Terri Heggemeyer, director of career services, at (402) 844-7263. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
“This event is a great way to connect employers and students,” Heggemeyer said. “It is a wonderful opportunity for employers to find part-time employees to fill their open positions. It brings together local businesses and our students to help the businesses meet their needs and positively impact the local economy.”
Heggemeyer offers a few important reminders to the prospective employees. “I encourage our Northeast students to dress well, bring a good attitude, friendly smile, and a firm handshake to the Job Fair. It really is true…you only get one chance to make a good first impression.”
Heggemeyer said Northeast Community College alumni are also welcome to attend the Part-Time Job Fair.
Tina Kassmeier, business manager of Petersen Ag Systems Inc. in Norfolk, greets a Northeast Community College student during the institution’s annual Part-Time Job Fair in 2019. The event was held online last year. Employers are encouraged to register for the 2021 Part-time Job Fair at Northeast that will be held on Tue., Aug. 31.
