Students will have the chance to meet representatives from more than 100 employers Thursday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Plano campus of Collin College.

Collin College’s Plano campus is hosting a career fair Thursday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The fair will showcase over 100 employers from various industries, including accounting, education, health care, government, law, manufacturing, and technology.

“If you are on the hunt for a career change or looking for that perfect first job, the Collin College Countywide Career Fair is a great opportunity to find the right fit,” Collin College senior vice president for student and community engagement Jay Corwin said in a release. “Now is the time to speak with employers, explore career options and get feedback on your job search.”

Students are encouraged to bring resumes and dress in professional attire for the potential employers.

“I’ve been looking to make more professional connections within the field I want to pursue so I’m glad that this job fair is being held so other students in a similar position can better outreach,” junior Reeyana Rahman said.

For junior Riya Sharma, this is an opportunity to showcase her skills and make connections with employers in the field she is interested in pursuing. 

“I think this fair is a chance to just put yourself out there to potential employers and really get a feel for what the field you want to pursue is going to be like,” Sharma said. “Especially as high schoolers, we don’t often get the real world experience so this is an opportunity to see how the field we’re pursuing outside of high school would be like.”
