Job Fair at LBCC

Hundreds of people filled the activity center at LBCC Thursday April 14th for the annual Career Fair. There were students and non-students all crowding the tables with a few representatives at each. Holly Hood a representative for Central Willamette tells me that, they are always looking for entry level teller positions, but they want people who want a career. Holly says, “we really are Friends for life".  Representatives for all of these places were very enthusiastic about what they do and the Company's they work for.  One of our Local radio stations was there, KGAL newstalk1580 which has all our Lebanon High school information; game scores and times, KSHO AM920 Has our local West Albany High information! Brian Holman, who is their Marketing Specialist,  tells me that they are trying to get satellite up and going so they can add a third station for South Albany’s information. As they sit now all of South’s information is kept up to date online.  Amber Kiker a local resident came to get the whole experience. Being new to town she felt “this is the perfect place to look for a job, the people are great!”  Our lovely mascot was also there to help support everyone and their efforts with the Career Fair.  Amber Kiker “I went up and rubbed his head for good luck.”
