Technology center students attend job fair

LAWTON, Okla._Students from Great Plains Technology Center had the opportunity to take part in a job fair Monday.

The fair allowed students to meet employers from Lawton and Oklahoma City. They also learned how to conduct themselves in a professional arena. A wide variety of students took part in the fair, ranging from those training in auto body repair skills to those learning IT and desktop support. About 30 employers total took part in the event.

Sunny Wiginton, an employment adviser for Great Plains Technology Center, said this experience was good, even for those who weren't graduating this year.

"Really trying to give them the chance to get out there and talk to employers, sometimes for the first time. And learn how to really interact with those employers, fill out applications and hopefully find them jobs here in the local community," said Wiginton.

If you happened to miss Monday's job fair, you can contact Wiginton in student services and she would be happy to assist you with your career goals.
