COOS BAY -- A networking and hiring event is coming to Southwestern Oregon Community College.

SWOCC will host an employment networking and hiring forum, sponsored by a U.S. Department of Labor CASE Grant, from 3-5:30 p.m. May 28 in Empire Hall.

The grant is geared toward helping students become job-ready when they graduate. SWOCC invites students to spend an afternoon meeting with local employers from a variety of industries.

Employers and students will participate in discussion panels where employers will present key hiring practices and employment tips. Students will also participate in mock interviews with employers.

The "What to Wear/What Not to Wear" fashion show is a highlight of the day, teaching students how to "dress for success." The show helps answer students' questions about appropriate interview attire.

For more information, contact CASE grant administrator Alane Jennings at 541-888-1612 or
