Submitted by McHenry County Community College

The Career Service Center at McHenry County College will host a series of two networking events for MCC students who are interested in landing jobs in health care, fitness, or business.

"Students have the opportunity to sit down and meet with employers in a more relaxed setting than at a traditional career fair," said Dan Ortego, career services coordinator. "Employers will have the opportunity to meet with students to discuss their company and employment opportunities."

The following networking sessions are available.
