The number of participating employers has doubled to more than 45 compared to last year, and the event has moved to the college’s gym in order to accommodate the number of people expected to attend.

Ahead of the job fair, the school is holding a workshop today to provide job seekers with tips on how to turn a job fair into a job offer.

The workshop will be held from 1-3 p.m. at the school’s Dresser Business Development Auditorium. Staff from Michigan Works! will participate, and people who attend the job fair will receive a $25 voucher to get interview clothing at Goodwill, the Building Hope Store and the Salvation Army stores in St. Joseph County.

The job fair will take place on Apr. 11 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
