The job fair gave people a chance to meet with a number of contacts all under one roof.

“Our students need them so they can get experience talking to companies and learning as they go, our graduates need them so they can secure career opportunities,” said NEMCC job fair organizer Carrie Cobb.

“I’ve actually got to meet a few people that I might have to come in contact with soon, I got to meet with Chick Fil A and Dirt Cheap, summer jobs to help me while I am in school,” said NEMCC student Victoria Brown.

More than 350 people attended the annual NEMCC Job Fair.
