The Annual Hire KC Career Fair will be hosted at the MCC – Penn Valley Campus in the Education Center on Friday, April 12, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Last year, more than 1000 jobs were available from area employers, and the event attracted hundreds of young people. The Hire KC Career Fair is one of Kansas City’s largest job fairs hosted for Kansas City’s young people to gain access to area employers (private, public and nonprofit) providing summer jobs and internship opportunities.
- Employers who register will be provided a 10’x10′ booth space equipped with one 6′ table and two chairs to display their organization’s materials and engage with attendees.
- Signs with your organization’s name will identify your space. You may bring your own branded materials (banner or signage, promotional materials, etc.)
- Linens are provided but employers may always bring their own table covers (6′ long table provided).
- If wifi is needed, employers are encouraged to bring their own hot-spot.
- The space will be available to employers to setup their booths Thursday 4/11 from 2pm-5pm or 4/12 from 8am-8:50am – the the day of the fair.
