2016 SKC Career Fair – Tuesday, February 23, 2016

2016 SKC Career Fair – Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Posted: 1/21/2016 12:14 PM

Salish Kootenai College (SKC) Career Services, Student Support Services (SSS), and Lake County Job Service extends an invitation to your organization to participate in our SKC Career Fair.

It will take place Tuesday, February 23, 2016.

The event will be held from 9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Joe McDonald Health and Wellness Center (gym).

The SKC Career Fair is a convenient, effective and inexpensive opportunity for recruiters to meet, network with, and interview prospective applicants. This is an opportunity for representatives from local, state and national organizations to offer full and part-time employment, summer employment, internships and career opportunities. In 2015 we had approximately 70 employment/recruitment agencies, and over 350 registered participants attended this event.

Career Fair participants will be able to gain insight on what employment opportunities  exist and what employers are looking for in qualified candidates. We would like the chance for all SKC students to explore job opportunities in their fields of study, as well as other areas of interest, by meeting potential employers and visiting with representatives. This can be accomplished by your agency participating in the 2016 SKC Career Fair!

If you wish to participate, we will provide: one table (4×6), two chairs, continental breakfast, and lunch. The early registration fee of $100 is due by January 22, 2016. The registration fee after January 22, 2015 will be $125.

All registered vendors will be featured in the SKC Career Fair Handbook. Your company’s information will be highlighted and put into the hands of everyone who attends the career fair. This is an excellent event to market opportunities within your organization/institution.

Salish Kootenai College and Lake County Job Service look forward to partnering with you to make this year’s career fair a huge success!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Lennie Webster at (406) 275-4826, Ellie McLeod at (406) 275-4825, or Brooke Filesteel at (406) 275-4865

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking: Overtime
The Department of Labor has announced a proposed rule that would extend overtime protections to nearly 5 million white collar workers within the first year of its implementation. Failure to update the overtime regulations has left an exception to overtime eligibility originally meant for highly-compensated executive, administrative, and professional employees now applying to workers earning as little as $23,660 a year. This proposed regulation is a critical first step toward ensuring that hard-working Americans are compensated fairly and have a chance to get ahead.

State of Montana Labor Day Report: A Summary
On Labor Day 2015, Montana’s workers and businesses are enjoying higher wages, strong output growth, and an ideal unemployment situation. With the rest of the nation finally catching up to Montana’s performance, consumers and businesses are gaining confidence that our economy is resilient enough to absorb global financial shocks. The U.S. and Montana economies are once again leading the world in economic strength and maintaining stability for developed and emerging economies alike.
