Job Fair Aug. 9 at North County Recreation Complex

Amidst simmering summer heat, creative minds are already sparking  preparations for fall. Central Methodist University (CMU) announces its “Push for Possibilities” Job Fair to be  held Tuesday, Aug. 9 from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the North County Recreation Complex, 2577 Redman Road.

“The event will highlight the wealth of talent that is available in the St. Louis area, as well as educational opportunities,” said Bridgette Reynolds, CMU’s director of corporate relations for the Adult Degree Program

The job fair is free and open to the public and a large turnout is expected, so job seekers are urged to register  ahead of time at Companies that will participate include Bunzl Distribution,

Weekends Only, Eastern Missouri Psychiatric Hospital System and F.A.M.S. Positions with these companies  range from frontline employees to administrative and leadership roles.

Job seekers will enjoy additional benefits from attending the fair. CMU is hosting free workshops throughout  the day, including “From “Hi” to HiredTM: How to Simplify and Ace the Interview,” led by career coach,  author and motivational speaker David Hults, “Business Writing that Hits the Mark” (a condensed version),  and “Exploring Financial Aid 101 for Adults”. Participants will also receive a packet of resources (e.g., résumé  writing dos and don’ts, dress for success, etc). Registration is required for the free workshops because space is limited.

CMU has also partnered with KidSmart to generate donations of much-needed school supplies for their Push  for Pencils program at the job fair and throughout the month of August.

CMU’s ADP services include reaching out to area companies to gauge employee educational interests, assisting  with professional development and successful succession planning goals, and providing additional resources  that may result in improved employee retention. ADP offers adults the convenience and affordability they  need, students attend class one night a week, one-on-one counseling, a personalized graduation plan and no hidden fees.
