Public invited to Career Fair at Motlow College

April 1, 2014

Motlow College students and area citizens are invited to attend a Career Fair on Tuesday, Apr. 22, according to Tom Dillingham, director of career planning and extended services at Motlow.

The fair will be held from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the courtyard between Simon Hall and the Forrester Student Center on the Moore County campus. In the event of inclement weather, the fair will be moved inside the Forrester Student Center.

There is no pre-registration fee or fee of any kind required to attend the event. Job seekers are encouraged to dress for success and bring copies of their resumes.

Representatives of manufacturing, banking, engineering, health care, continuing education, military, beauty care and other industries will set up booths to promote their individual businesses and job openings. Any business interested in participating in this year's event is urged to contact Dillingham by calling 931-393-1760 or by email at

This year's fair will include the Tennessee Dept. of Labor's Career Coach Bus, a mobile center with services similar to those found in Tennessee Career Centers. The Career Coach Bus includes a computer lab with tools for job seekers, such as workshops for resume assistance and interview skills. The Coach also serves as a recruitment center for companies moving into Tennessee and helps identify what employers are looking for in applicants.

Personnel from Tennessee Labor and Workforce Development area offices will be on hand to assist with resume writing and will hold mock interview sessions, while providing information about local job opportunities.

Representatives from Trevecca Nazarene University will serve hot dogs and drinks to attendees. Games and music are also a part of the event's agenda.
