Hundreds of Job Seekers Attend NMC Career Fair (April 3, 2014)

About 400 job seekers attended yesterday’s Career Fair at the Northern Marianas College and met with prospective employers who were looking to hire.

According to NMC’s Career Services Manager, Neda Deleon Guerrero, 20 businesses and government agencies participated in the event to meet with potential job applicants and to promote career opportunities.

“The event was very helpful,” said Paul Mariano, NMC Liberal Arts major. “It was easier walking around to different tables to see the companies rather than driving to each place.”

The businesses and government agencies that participated in yesterday’s Career Fair included: Employment Services and WIA (Workforce Investment Agency), Hyatt Regency Saipan, Sorensen Media group, CDI Workforce Development, Commonwealth Office of Transit Authority (COTA), Triple J Saipan, DFS Saipan, the CNMI Office of Personnel Management, J.C. Tenorio Enterprises, Marianas Health, Pacific Islands Club, Commonwealth Utilities Corporation, CNMI Head Start Program, Public School System, YCO, Pacifica Insurance, Northern Marianas College Human Resources, College Access Challenge Grant, Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, and the Northern Marianas Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence.

The Commonwealth Office of Transit Authority (COTA) also provided rides to over 30 participants to the event.

Triple J Enterprises representative, Micah Parico-Acuazera, found the event to be “successful” and was “Happy to see many people actively looking for jobs.”

“This was a great event,” said Amanda Sablan, DFS representative. “It was a good way to gather people who are looking for jobs and it’s also a good way to show opportunities available.”

In the past, NMC held its annual Career Fair to assist mainly graduating students and graduates of NMC find employment. The Fair was later opened to other members in the community to benefit both employers and job seekers. The Career Fair was held on Thursday, April 3, 2014 in Room D-1 at the NMC campus.

“We are extremely happy with the turnout this year,” according to Deleon Guerrero. “Thank you to all the businesses, offices and organizations that participated in this year’s Career Fair.”

The Career Fair is supported by the College Access Challenge Grant program.
