Feb. 11, 2016 GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A job fair hosted by Grand Rapids Community College this month includes many employers seeking summer help.


Michigan's Adventure, Celebration Cinema, the Kent County Parks Department, and Craig's Cruisers are just a few of area employers who will be represented at the event, which runs 9 a.m. to noon Feb. 24 in room 234 of GRCC's Student Community Center, 122 Lyon St. NE. The job fair is open to GRCC students, alumni and the community.

"The tourism and recreation industry offers the opportunity to gain technical and customer service skills that translate to many other employment settings," said Haley Spencer, from GRCC's Student Employment Services. "Adding these skills to a resume will showcase a range of talents and experiences. Even a summer job can help someone prepare for future career goals!"
