COCC’s upcoming Spring JobFest offers opportunities for career-seekers


Career seekers looking for new opportunities will find more than 40 local companies and agencies — representing health care, government, natural resources, technology, food service and other fields — at Central Oregon Community College’s 2024 Spring JobFest, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16, at the Coats Campus Center on the Bend campus. This event is free and open to the public.

Participating employers include St. Charles Health System, the city of Redmond, NeighborImpact, Bend Parks and Recreation, FivePine Lodge, Discover Your Forest and BestCare Treatment Services, among others. Visit to learn more and view the complete list of employers.

Attendees will discover employment, internship and volunteer opportunities while finding out about skills and experiences needed for these positions. For those needing resume assistance – event organizers recommend creating or updating a resume prior to attending — guidelines and samples can be found at the aforementioned website.

“Participants can speak directly to recruiters and ask questions about specific jobs, and even network with other attendees,” said Diane Pritchard, COCC’s director of careers, advising and personal counseling. “While you may not leave JobFest with an offer in hand, you’ll leave with a better understanding of where you want to apply for positions and who to get in touch with to follow up.”
