American National University's $$Lynchburg Campus recently held a mini job fair for students, graduates, and community members. Six employers participated, discussing job openings, accepting applications and résumés, and offering advice to job seekers.
The event also provided a great opportunity for local employers to network. Employers from all fields were on campus – from staffing agencies and technology, to medical and management. "This continues to be an excellent venue to meet and network with employers," stated Charles Guerin with the Virginia Employment Commission.

The $$Lynchburg Campus is gearing up for its larger spring career fair in June, planning for more than 20 employers to attend. These events provide valuable opportunities for members of the community, as well as students and graduates, to get face-to-face with local employers. “I saw the posting in the newspaper this morning and decided to stop by,” said Kathy, a community member. “Speaking to the ANU admissions representatives made me want to think more about furthering my education. I will definitely be here for the June event!”
