News Release, College of Southern Maryland
Residents who are looking for a job, or are looking to change jobs, are encouraged to attend the 2019 Tri-County Job and Career Fair at the College of Southern Maryland (CSM). The annual free event will be held April 9 at CSM’s La Plata Campus, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This public service is provided by CSM’s Career Services and will bring more than 50 employers from throughout the tri-county region to the college’s Center for Business and Industry (BI Building) to give area businesses and organizations a chance to meet prospective workers and to give job seekers the valuable opportunity to learn about current opportunities in the region.
“Meeting in person allows for students, alumni and community members to interview the potential employers and ask those important questions,” said CSM Advising, Career and Transfer Services Lead Administrative Assistant Tracy Sewell. “Most seeking employment forget the interview process is a two-way street — employers are interviewing for potential employees, but students, alumni and community members should be interviewing their potential employer, too.”
Sewell advised job seekers to dress professionally, tighten up their résumés and bring multiple copies of it, as interviews for positions could take place at the event. The job fair is open to anyone of legal working age.
In addition to the opportunity to visit employer tables, job seekers can participate in a free workshop, “The Government Hiring Process,” which will cover how to secure a job with the federal government. Lesley Renfro with the Naval Research Laboratory will offer this presentation at noon. In addition, CSM’s Career Services professionals will review résumés and offer advice the day of the event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the BI Atrium. Also, Room 102 will be available for students, alumni and community members to research employers and update their resumes.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
