The Bowie Baysox host the 17th Central Maryland Career Fair at Prince George’s Stadium Friday, Sept. 17, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.  The biannual career fair is sponsored by The Pennysaver and presented in conjunction with the Prince George’s County Economic Development Corporation and Prince George’s County Workforce Services.

Admission for career-seekers is free, and participants are encouraged to wear business attire.  Last year, more than 700 attendees met face-to-face with potential employers across multiple job sectors.

Among companies scheduled to attend are H&R Block, Maryland Army National Guard and Strayer University.  Baysox Director of Sponsorships Matt McLaughlin points to companies returning to the career fair as an indication of the event’s success.

“Frito-Lay, in particular, is excited to attend again,” McLaughlin said.  “They have always been impressed with the quality of the applicants.  We have traditionally attracted very talented and highly motivated career-seekers.”

Companies interested in securing recruitment space at the Central Maryland Career Fair can contact McLaughlin at (301) 464-4875, or via e-mail at [email protected] for pricing information and availability.

A complete listing of companies attending can be found online at www.baysox.com. Attendees are encouraged to check the Web site often for updates on companies scheduled to attend.
