second annual Career Expo Friday, Oct. 18, in the Student
and Culinary Arts Center on the main campus. The College seeks
employers to attend and is offering sponsorship options.
According to Chad Austin, HFCC Career Services officer,
the goal is to have 120 employers attend the Career Expo, which
is free and open to the public in addition to HFCC students. To
date, more than 44 employers have confirmed their attendance at
the Career Expo.
Some of those employers that will attend include the following:

Employers can participate in the morning session, which is from
9 a.m. to noon or the afternoon session, which is from 2 to 5

both sessions, said Austin.

materials and announcements, as well as a prime table location.

wide variety of areas. Employers know that if you graduate from
a program here that you can jump right in and get to work for
them,” said Austin.

get their message and employment opportunities out to the
Dearborn and Detroit communities in a fun and exciting venue,”
