UWF Haas Center, PSC to hold career fair in Century

Pensacola, Fla. – January 27, 2015 – The University of West Florida Haas Center for Business Research & Economic Development and Pensacola State College Student Jobs Services will co-sponsor a Career and Business Event on Jan. 30 in Century. The event, a career fair that will feature about 20 companies that are actively hiring, will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the PSC Century Center at 440 E. Hecker Road.

The career fair was planned as part of an economic development agreement between the Town of Century and the Haas Center.

“Job seekers face challenges going into Pensacola to attend career fairs and hiring events,” said Allison Tyler, economic development coordinator with the Haas Center. “Any time we can bring employers to Century, it helps to eliminate some of these barriers to employment.”

Gulf Power, Navy Federal Credit Union, Home Depot, Lowe’s, the Century Care Center and other local employers will have a presence at the event.

In addition, staff from about 10 state agencies and nonprofit organizations, including the Florida Department of Children and Families, Community Action Program Pensacola and the PSC Education Opportunity Center, will be at the career fair to provide assistance to attendees.

Representatives from the Florida SBDC at UWF also will attend the event to speak with business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs about consulting services offered by the SBDC.

For more information, call Allison Tyler at 850-256-3155 or Sherry Duffey at 850-484-1653.
