We are taking ASmartPlace on the Road to the web! We will be hosting a virtual ASmartPlace on the Road recruiting event for students attending the colleges and universities in North Alabama. Students from UAH, Athens State University, Calhoun Community College, Alabama A&M University, Drake State Community and Technical College, Oakwood University and other students in North Alabama will be attending.
Companies, this is a great opportunity to showcase your company and job openings (both internships and full-time positions) to recent graduates or current students. Each company will have two minutes to give an elevator pitch about their company. Make sure to include jobs you are hiring for! We are limiting this event to 20 companies.
Event outline: 10–10:15 a.m.: Welcome and Huntsville Top 10 Presentation 10:15–10:55 a.m.: 20 Company Presentations 10:55–11 a.m.: Questions and Wrap-Up
After the webinar, students who registered for the event will be emailed a one-page info sheet with information about Huntsville and the 20 companies that attend with contact information/links/company description.
Nearly 30 percent of high school seniors do not have plans after graduation. The Senior Sprint Career Fair will connect these students with employers who are ready to hire and colleges that can help them set a successful career path. The Huntsville/Madison County Chamber is collaborating with Huntsville City Schools, Madison County Schools, Madison City Schools, the local Alabama Career Center, Drake State Community and Technical College, Calhoun Community College, and local companies to help students create resumes, get job interviews, apply for student financial aid, and enroll in post-secondary education and training. If you are a graduating senior who has already enrolled in a two-year college, this event will be perfect for you as well.
Employers who are interested in attending this event MUST be willing to train, hire, and provide clear occupational pathways for graduating seniors. It is important for employers to have growth strategies for each graduate hired.
This event seeks to engage and interview students on the same day. The Career Fair will last from 10 a.m.– 2 p.m. Employers are highly encouraged to hire on the spot.
The Huntsville/Madison County Chamber will provide transportation to this event. One bus will be sent to each of the 13 high schools in Madison County. We are expecting more than 600 students to attend this year.
Companies & organizations may set up at the Hogan Family YMCA – Madison as early as 8 a.m. on April 29, 2020. The fair will officially begin at 10 a.m.
