IMPERIAL — More than 60 employers from local, state and federal governmental agencies, as well as private businesses, will be on the Imperial Valley College campus Oct. 17 for Career Fair 2001 and Equipment Showcase.

The theme is "Preparing for a future in Industrial Technology."

In order to accommodate more people, the career fair has been expanded into the evening hours this year. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. Displays will be in the DePaoli Sports Complex and the IVC Industrial Technology department, buildings 1100, 1200 and 1300.

"This year's career fair will be a hands-on event, featuring interactive displays of industrial technology," according to Gonzalo Huerta, IVC's dean of applied sciences.

"Additionally, technicians will be demonstrating state-of-the-art equipment and processes," he added.

Presenting employers include businesses and agencies with technical demonstrations ranging from high-tech auto repair and welding equipment, to video technology demonstrated by local electronic media outlets.


The military, as well as local and state law enforcement agencies, also will be present with technical equipment demonstrations.

"We are very pleased with our participants this year," Huerta said. "These displays are designed for students of all ages, the public in general, as well as people who may be entertaining career changes," he added.

Joining IVC this year in co-sponsoring the event are the Imperial Valley Joint Chambers of Commerce, Imperial Valley Regional Occupational Program, School to Career, Imperial County Workforce Investment Board, Imperial Irrigation District and Yosemite Waters.
