Business Expo at SCCC Offers Network and Job Search Opportunities

NEWTON, N.J. – Get ready to SPRING into action! Looking for work? Need help with a job search? Thinking about starting a business? Answers and assistance abound at Sussex County Community College (SCCC).

Hosted by SCCC’s business education department and Business & Entrepreneurial Club, the Fifth Annual Business & Networking Community Expo and Mini Job Fair is slated for Thursday, April 20, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the health sciences and performing arts center (PAC) building.

The networking session runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the PAC atrium. Attendees can meet local business representatives and apply for open positions and internships, get advice on a job search or learn a bit about launching a business, as well as network with SCCC students, faculty, alumni, business owners and peers. Businesses in attendance will be PKF-O’Connor Davies, SCARC, United Life Brokers, Edward Jones, Valpak, TD Bank, Chipotle, UPS, Staples, Newton and College Coaching with Care.

A seminar discussing “Diversity in the Workplace” will follow from 1:15 p.m. to 2 p.m. in room A232. Community members and businesses from the surrounding area will be invited to participate, along with representatives from SCCC.

Sal Paolucci, SCCC business program coordinator and co-advisor noted, “Networking offers a great opportunity to speak with representatives from many of the businesses in and around our community, opening new doors and giving you access to prospects you might not be able to find on your own.”

Open to the public, all are welcome to attend. The expo is free of charge, and pre-registration is not necessary. Light refreshments will be served.

For business owners, this is a unique opportunity to network and promote your business. Spaces are still available, at no cost, for those interested in taking part in the expo. Email Professor Sal Paolucci, event coordinator, at spaolucci@sussex.edu.
