2015 Career Fair

Rosedale Technical College’s Fall 2015 Career Fair on September 23, 2015 was another great success. More than 105 regional employers attended the Fair, looking for highly trained and skilled workers to keep up with the demand in automotive technology, diesel, electrical, and HVAC technology, as well as welding, truck driving, and industrial technician. At this fair, 44 companies were available for interviews and 275 student interviews were conducted during the fair, while many second-round interviews were set up for the future.


We’re proud to say that employers were so impressed with our students’ knowledge and training that on-the-spot job offers were made, and post-fair surveys indicated that the employers attending would definitely consider hiring Rosedale’s students.

Employers also said:

  • I consider the Rosedale career fair a total success and nave zero negative feedback . . . it is definitely always on our calendar as a “must attend” event.
  • Students showed a lot of improvement with interview preparation. . . they had questions ready to ask and presented themselves professionally.
  • This is the best participation in any job fair I’ve participated in.

As always, our faculty and staff helped to prepare students for the career fair. Each Rosedale Tech student takes part in a career preparation course that includes instruction on how to write a resume and cover letter, how to prepare for an interview, and how to choose and follow-up with prospective employers.
