Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- If you're looking for work, Kirkwood Community College will soon hold two events that might help get you back on your feet. 

The college's Career Services office will hold an informational program on Tuesday, Oct. 19, and a career fair on Tuesday, Nov. 9.  Both sessions will be held in the Iowa Rooms, third floor of Iowa Hall on the Cedar Rapids campus.

The "Jobs 411" program will help educate job seekers about the interviewing and hiring practices of four key local employers: Mercy Medical Center, the Skywalk Group, and Genencor, plus a local human resources professional currently on assignment with Rockwell Collins. Representatives of the four firms will be on hand for discussions of current and possible future openings.  Free resume critiques will be offered after the event.

The career fair will give attendees an opportunity to talk with employer representatives from about 50 companies in the Cedar Rapids-Iowa City area.  It will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Both programs are free and open to the public.
