Southwest Florida College, in partnership with Southwest Florida Works, will host their first Regional Job Fair at the Holiday Inn Airport Town Center in Fort Myers on Friday, November 18th.

According to Dr. Stephen Calabro, President of the college, "We want employers to know that Southwest Florida College Graduates have been and continue to be an essential part of the regional workforce. Our graduates are ‘job ready’ and very eager to put their training and experience to work. We are thrilled to provide employers with this exclusive opportunity to meet each of our graduates up close and personal."

"As part of our commitment to the community," said Calabro "we are extending an invitation to job seekers throughout Lee County to attend the event later in the afternoon to meet with employers. Job seekers who wish to explore coming back to college and retraining or sharpening their knowledge can visit with members of our Admissions Team and our Industry Relations and Graduate Placement Staff at the Regional Career Fair event."

Joe Paterno, Executive Director of the Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board, is pleased to partner with Southwest Florida College and the region’s businesses to help job seekers explore prospective career options and educational opportunities.  Mr. Paterno stated "This will be a great opportunity for students who have or will soon graduate, as well as under-employed and unemployed Southwest Florida residents to connect with hiring officials at some of the region’s best places to work."

The event will be open to the public between the hours of 1 PM and 4 PM and is “complimentary” to both employers and job seekers. The college is providing a special morning session and luncheon for participating employers.  Limited Underwriter opportunities are still available.
