Marianas Variety: 346 jobseekers, 57 companies/agencies participate in NMC Career Fair. (May 7, 2018)

MORE than 300 jobseekers participated in Northern Marianas College's annual Career Fair held Friday in Taga Hall at the Saipan World Resort.

NMC career manager Neda Deleon Guerrero said 57 companies and agencies received applications from and conducted interviews with 346 jobseekers.

She said the event was successful and was an indication that many people in the community were seeking employment.

But Deleon Guerrero said the career fair was not just for NMC students and graduates.

'The career fair is for the whole community,' she added.

Deleon Guerrero said they have been holding annual career fairs for years now.

'The career fair started very small. We used to host it on campus in Room D1. We would have 11 agencies or companies participating, but now we are up to almost 60 today,' she said.

NMC President Carmen Fernandez expressed gratitude to the agencies and companies participating in this year's career fair.

She said many people will be able to get jobs through the event.

Among the agencies that took part his year was the Public School System.

PSS-Human Resources Office's Donna Flores said they accepted applications from 70 individuals.

She said PSS needs teachers for Early Head Start, the special education program and counselors. 'We also need occupational therapists, speech pathologists and psychologists. These are hard-to-fill positions,' Flores said.

'Luckily for us, NMC produces a lot of teacher graduates. We are able to absorb those graduates and place them in teaching-related positions. But those specialized areas, such as speech pathology and occupational therapy, those are a little harder to fill locally,' Flores added.

Mother and daughter Lourdes and Kristine Cabang were among the jobseekers at the career fair.

Kristine Cabang, a student at NMC, said the previous career fair helped her get a job at a grocery store. 'I am here to see other options.'

Her mother Lourdes, a 52-year-old accounting graduate, is looking for an administrative assistant job.
