NORFOLK, Neb.– Approximately 150 Northeast Community College students interested in part-time employment had the opportunity to visit with potential employers this week. Northeast’s Career Service Office hosted its annual Part-Time Job Fair in the Lifelong Learning Center on the Northeast campus in Norfolk.
The students were able to visit with 48 employers who registered for the event about part-time employment opportunities during the 2021-22 academic year. Employers recruited for a variety of positions including restaurant, retail, health, and customer service, among others.
“This event is a great way to connect employers and students,” said Terri Heggemeyer, director of career services. “It is an opportunity for employers to find part-time employees to fill their open positions. It also brings together local businesses and our students to help the businesses meet their needs and positively impact the local economy.”
The event is offered free to businesses and to students.
