The Career Action Center will host its first-ever Career Expo on Wednesday, May 10. The event is for students only and will be held at 10 a.m. at Mountlake Terrace Hall, commencing in the Career Resource Room, Room 138.

The Career Expo is an event dedicated to showing students the many tools and skills needed to find the right job and successfully apply.

The event will occur in multiple locations throughout Mountlake Terrace Hall. Each showroom has a different career preparation focus.

“Navigating the job market from beginning to end is a tough skill to learn. Joining us for this hands-on experience will help you develop those skills using proven methods so you can get your first job or advance your career,” says Douglas Evans, Career Action Center business outreach specialist.

Showroom 1 (MLT 138): Resume Critique

Qualified personnel will review and mark off participants’ resumes so that they know where to make improvements before progressing to the next showroom.

Showroom 2 (MLT 105): Soft Skills
