The following industry-focused career fairs will be held at the college’s Student Success Center from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the following dates:
Thursday, Nov. 1: Healthcare
Thursday, March 21, 2019: Advanced Manufacturing, Transportation/Logistics/Distribution & Construction Trades
The Burlington Regional Chamber of Commerce is providing promotional sponsorship for the Career Fair as well.

Anyone planning to attend must be at least 18 years old and dress in professional business attire. For more information and a list of employers attending the event, visit rcbc.edu/careerfair.
