WWCC to Host Career and Transfer Fair

Western Wyoming Community College will host a Career and Transfer Fair in the Atrium on campus, Wednesday, March 28th, 2018 from 10:00AM to 2:00PM.

The event serves as a connector between prospective employers or four year colleges and students.

Western Wyoming Community College is dedicated to preparing our students for success in the classroom and in the workforce. The ACE IT Center has an extensive career development resource library where students can research résumé writing techniques and tips as well as supplement their career exploration research.

Career-readiness workshops are offered throughout the school year to assist students in résumé writing and enhancing their interviewing skills.
