Grand Rapids Community College is hosting a job fair to connect people with jobs in its Facilities Department, offering rewarding careers maintaining and supporting the college
The event is planned for 1-4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 3 in room 214 of the Wisner-Bottrall Applied Technology Center, 151 Fountain St NE.
The event will cover open positions, highlight the benefits of working at GRCC, and walk participants through the application process.
The college has openings on its custodial, grounds and maintenance teams.
“Our custodial positions are a perfect opportunity for people to start a good and essential career, and take advantage of the college’s tuition benefit to gain in-demand skills to advance at GRCC or elsewhere,” said Cathy Kubiak, GRCC’s executive director of Human Resources. “We have outstanding benefits, and it’s rewarding to be part of a team that helps our college transform lives.”
Patrick Baldridge started at GRCC as a custodian in December 2000, gained experience and skills and now is associate director of operations.
“I absolutely love my job,” he said. “I work with good people, and the things I am able to do can help people and make them happy. We have good salaries, great benefits, and opportunities to move up.”
