Event Description:

The Barry County Career Expo will take place on November 28, 2017 at the Thornapple Valley Church, in Hastings!  This is a great opportunity to showcase your business to 600 freshman students in Barry County. Lunch and refreshments will be provided between the AM and PM sessions.

Much different than a typical job fair, the career expo will guide students through multiple career exposure 'pods', with companies & organizations grouped together based on career fields represented. Students will rotate through all of the career pods during their time at the expo.

Businesses wishing to participate in the Barry County Career Expo must register their business by October 31, 2017.  Chairs and tables will be provided for your booth.  You are encouraged to do live demonstrations, bring a hands-on visual, or use some other type of interactive tool to engage students.  Be creative and think outside of the box!

When registering, please select one of the following "Career Fields" from the pricing menu:

  • Healthcare & Health Science Technology
  • Engineering, Manufacturing, & Technology
  • Arts, Communications, & Information Systems
  • Agriculture, Food, & Natural Resources
  • Business, Management, & Administration
  • Human Services

Want to have your company representing multiple career fields? Sign up multiple individuals to attend. There is no charge for additional company representatives after the initial registration, but we do ask that you sign them up, for planning and logistical purposes.

Proudly brought to you by the Barry Career Access Network (BCAN), with support from Thornapple Valley Church-Hastings, Kellogg Community College, West Michigan Works!, and the Barry County Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development Alliance.
