ACTC and Ashland Alliance host Technical and Professional Career Fair

November 7, 2023

Ashland Community and Technical College hosted its fall Technical and Professional Career Fair in partnership with Ashland Alliance last Thursday, October 26. 


In attendance were 66 representatives from 36 different employers, giving 167 students and alumni in attendance a wide variety of business and industry partners to meet with to discuss employment opportunities. 


“The Fall 2023 Technical and Professional Career Fair reflects the continuing growth of ACTC’s partnership with local and regional employers,” said Ashley Vanderpool, ACTC Career Services Director. “With the support of our program coordinators, instructors, and staff, our students gained the opportunity to connect and network with various employers to learn more about employment and work-based learning opportunities.”
