"Transforming Lives Through Quality Learning Experiences"


Career Expo
Published: February 01 2016

Arkansas State University-Beebe invites local and statewide employers to participate in the annual Career Expo for spring 2016 to be held on Tuesday, March 8, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Owen Center Gymnasium.

 

Career and Transfer Services Coordinator Jason Henry encourages employers to bring displays, handouts, employment applications, and company literature. “The ASU-Beebe Career Expo is a well-publicized event, is free of charge, and there is no cost for parking,” said Henry. The deadline for employer registration is Friday, February 26.

 

“The mission of the Career Expo is two-fold: we want to showcase the incredibly talented students from our 70+ degree programs to area employers and we want area employers to know ASU-Beebe and its career service office values them,” said Henry.

 

The purpose of the Career Expo is to connect companies with highly qualified candidates for employment. Employers will have the opportunity to publicize positions that are currently or often available with their companies. In addition, students, alumni, and community members will have the chance to fill out applications, submit resumes, and learn about participating organizations and their employment needs.

 

Currently registered employers include Ace Hardware Corporation, Arkansas Rehabilitation Services, Arkansas State Police, Cantrell Drug Company, City of Sherwood, COOL 104.7 KFLI, Home Instead Senior Care, The Heritage Company, Little Rock SCORE, Lowes, Pulaski County Special School District, Regions Bank, SubTeachUSA, Verizon, and the White River Area Agency on Aging.

 

Employers that have positions available, or those that would like to reserve a free booth at the Career Expo, may call the Student Success Center at 501-882-8906 or email Jason Henry at jmhenry@asub.edu.
