Dozens of major employers will be recruiting candidates at Bellevue College’s Networking & Job Fair from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on May 16. Participating employers include Costco, Lowe’s Home Improvement, Aegis Living, Alaska Airlines, BECU, Wells Fargo Bank, YMCA of Greater Seattle, Starbucks, and EvergreenHealth.

“We’re very excited to host so many employers on campus,” said Fabienne Mouton, associate director of corporate outreach at the Center for Career Connections at Bellevue College. “It’s a great opportunity to build relationships and practice interview skills in a more relaxed setting. A lot of people find it a bit intimidating to approach a potential employer the first time. But after you’ve talked with a few employers, it dials down the ‘nerves’ factor and makes it easier for employers and prospective employees to get to know each other.”

The event is free and open to the public. Students are encouraged to attend, as employers will also be looking for interns. In addition to employment and networking opportunities, guests can also get free professional digital headshots taken by freelance photographer Leila Saghafi.
