The Iowa Central Community College campus recently played host to over 60 employers and almost 400 students for a career fair.

Decker Truck Line, Inc., Fort Dodge School District, Unity Point, Friendship Haven, CJ Bio America, the City of Fort Dodge, Cargill and Nestle Purina were among those in attendance for Triton students.

“Our main goal with the event is to connect students and employers to one another,” said Jessica Kavanaugh, Career Services Coordinator for Iowa Central. “Two of the most important things students get is the opportunity to network with potential employers and learn about the job opportunities in their industry. Some students think that because they already have a job lined up they do not need to attend. What they forget is they still need to build their network because chances are they will not stay in that position forever.

“The event makes a lasting impact on the students. Some students are gaining an internship or full–time position out of the event. Others have expanded their network, increased their communication skills and made connections to start or continue a successful career.”

The coaches inspire me every day, not just to be a good dancer, but to be a better person, teammate, captain, and student. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else other than Iowa Central.
