LCC to host May 18th Job Fair

EUGENE: Lane Community College (LCC) will host its annual Job Fair, taking place on Thursday, May 18th, from 1 to 5 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Organizers say the Job Fair aims to connect employers with job seekers from both the college and the community. Gold Sponsors for this year’s event include Eugene Area Radio Stations, Grape Solar, PacificSource, and Willamette Family, Inc. Silver Sponsors are Lane Council of Governments, SERVPRO, and SunWize.

Tina Hunter, Scholarship and Employment Specialist recommends attendees research participating employers in advance, dress professionally as if attending a job interview, bring updated resumes, and prepare a 15-second elevator pitch to introduce themselves to potential employers. Participants will also have the chance to enter a free raffle for door prizes.

According to Hunter, “Our annual Job Fair is a unique opportunity for job seekers to connect with a diverse range of local employers, all under one roof. We encourage participants to take advantage of our workshops, as a well-prepared candidate is more likely to stand out and make a lasting impression on potential employers.”

Instructor and Career Counselor Beth Landy will host virtual “Prepare for the Job Fair” workshops, focusing on “Resumes and Conversations that will Impress Employers.” These workshops are open to the public and designed to help attendees make the most of their Job Fair experience.

The Job Fair will be held in Building 19 (first-floor lobby) at the main campus, located at 4000 E. 30th Avenue in Eugene. For more information, including the employer registration form, a list of participating employers, and the workshop schedule, visit the Job Fair website at
