ACTC job fair set for April 19 at Kyova Mall

CANNONSBURG — Adult job-seekers will be able to explore educational opportunities while looking for work at an upcoming job fair.

Ashland Community and Technical College will be holding an adult college fair in conjunction with the Tri-State Job and Career Fair, said dean of student affairs Willie McCullough.

The college fair will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 19 at the Kyova Mall on U.S. 60 in Cannonsburg.

It is one of 16 being held around the state. The Kentucky Community and Technical College System is hosting fairs at all 16 of its colleges during the month.

College representatives will be on hand to talk about how to apply for admission and financial aid and about college major programs.

Adult education experts will be there for those who need information about earning GED diplomas as part of their career education.

The fairs are aimed at adults so representatives will be prepared to talk about short-term college career paths, McCullough said, including certificates and diplomas. “College doesn’t have to be a two-year degree,” she said.

ACTC is partnering for the second year with the job fair and McCullough said the college was pleased with the response from last year’s fair, also at the Kyova Mall. Between 300 and 400 attended that event and got information about college and careers, she said.
