13th Annual Career Expo

Thursday, February 18, 2010

The SC State University Career Center will host the 13th Annual Community Higher Education Council (CHEC) Career Expo on Thursday, Feb. 18, 2010 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The expo will be held in the Smith-Hammond-Middleton Memorial Center, located on the campus of SC State University.

CHEC is a collaborative effort between SC State, Claflin University and Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College. This year’s theme is “One Step Toward A Successful Career”. 

Professionals and agencies from across the nation have been invited to share information with students, faculty, alumni and others who would like to enter the workforce to explore a wide variety of internship and full-time employment opportunities. With the current unemployment rate exceeding 12 percent, the CHEC Career Expo is a necessity, says Joseph Thomas, interim director of the Career Center.
