CSM Job, Career Fair Business Early-Bird Registration Feb. 25

Employer registration is underway for the College of Southern Maryland’s annual Tri-County Job and Career Fair at the La Plata Campus April 8. Businesses throughout Southern Maryland will be recruiting students and community residents for job openings as well as advising on future career opportunities and internships within their organizations.

“This is an excellent opportunity for employers to get their face out there and engage with the public,” said CSM Assistant Director of Employment and Employee Relations Tonia Miles-Carvana. “Employers and people looking for jobs can learn about each other—the kinds of careers that are available right now or jobs that might become available in the future.”

Carlos Montague, president and CEO of Port Tobacco Consulting, a defense contractor with an office in La Plata, has participated in several job and career fairs, including some technical fairs. “In addition to meeting potential employees and collecting resumes for future jobs, the fairs are a great way to get our company out in front of people and network with other possible business partners,” he said. 

Employers who register will be provided with an eight-foot draped booth, a six-foot draped table, two chairs and a sign. Light refreshments will be provided. Registration received by Feb. 25 is $225. Registration after Feb. 25 is $275.
