The Martinsville Campus admissions and career center staff attended the May 6 community-wide job fair sponsored by the Martinsville-Henry County Chamber of Commerce. The event was advertised as the largest chamber job fair in 10 years, with a total of 1550 jobs listed and 40 employers being represented. The admissions staff was pleased to answer questions and share information about American National University with visitors attending the job fair. “They see positions they would like to have, but they may be lacking the skills needed to be considered,” explained director of admissions Barbara Rakes. “I explain that our programs at the Martinsville Campus can help a job seeker gain the skills needed to meet employer needs.”
Admissions representative Kim Myers noted that the job fair was a welcome event to help both job seekers and potential students. “This large of a gathering is positive for the community, the employers, and for American National University,” she commented. “Our programs can assist people here who need training in management, administrative, and medical office fields.”
Admissions representative Kim Myers spoke with ANU graduate Kim Reyell about the new medical and health services management bachelor's degree program offered at the Martinsville Campus.
