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.
