ANN ARBOR, Michigan (May 7, 2019) – Washtenaw Community College is hosting its first Advanced Transportation & Mobility Career Fair, offering students and the community the opportunity to meet employers from the growing intelligent transportation industries.
A joint effort by WCC’s Career Transitions department and its Advanced Transportation Center, the career fair will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, May 20, in the Morris Lawrence Building on the college’s Ann Arbor campus (4800 E. Huron River Drive).
“The auto industry is no longer strictly a manufacturing field, it’s an industry made up of individuals with widely varying skills – from manufacturing to cybersecurity and many in between,” said Al Lecz, Director of WCC’s Advanced Transportation Center. “Our goal is to not only give our students an opportunity to network with these companies and discuss current employment options, but also to expose them to what the jobs of the future will look like in the mobility field.”
The event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is requested, but not required, and available at wccnet.edu/careerfair.
Confirmed employers to date include Aerotek, Dunning Motors, Enterprise Rent A Car, FT Techno of America, GDI Infotech, GTA Professional Staffing, Jacobs, March Coatings Inc., Penske Vehicle Services, Phoenix Services, Slankster, TekWissen and THEL Group. An up-to-date list is available at wccnet.edu/careerfair.
The WCC Career Transitions department hosts a variety of events throughout the year. In addition to the general career fairs open to the public in spring and fall, the college hosts student events for niche areas such as advanced manufacturing, business and healthcare.
