Marianas Variety: 400 applicants, 50 companies, agencies join NMC Career Fair (April 28, 2017)

NORTHERN Marianas College held its annual career fair at the Saipan World Resort on Thursday morning with more than 400 jobseekers filling out application forms and undergoing interviews with the representatives of the over 50 participating companies and agencies.

According to NMC career services program manager Neda Camacho Deleon Guerrero, the applicants ranged in age from 18 to over 50 years old .

“We had workshops that led t to the career fair. We wanted to make sure that everyone was prepared and we wanted everyone to get hired. That is our goal — to allow everyone to succeed. We hope our community in general is successful, that is why we opened it up to them,” she said.

In the past, Deleon Guerrero said they held the career fair on the NMC campus, but they decided to hold it in a bigger venue because the the event is getting bigger.

“We started with 13 agencies and companies, and now we are growing,” she said, adding that most of the participants were from the private sector, especially the hotel and restaurant industry, and government agencies, including U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

CBP is looking for officers and the salary range is $32,844 to $52,893 per year. The duties include enforcing customs, immigration and agriculture law and regulations; facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel; and preventing illegal entry of individuals and prohibited goods and the smuggling of illegal drugs and other contraband. An applicant must be a U.S. citizen, must pass a medical examination and a polygraph test and must have no criminal record. Interested individuals are encouraged to apply online.

Most of the participating business establishments such as Kanoa Resort, IHOP-Ajisen Ramen and the Pacific Island Club received multiple job applications.

Arthur So, Kanoa Resort food and beverage manager, said they also interviewed applicants, adding that the applications will be submitted to their human resource department.

“Our HR will then call them back for another interview,” he said. Kanoa Resort needs a cashier, life guards and kitchen helpers.

NMC career services program manager Neda Deleon Guerrero said it was the most successful NMC Career Fair yet.

“The number of participants is overwhelming. It just shows that we need more events like this,” she added.

Aside from the career fair, the NMC Career Center also provides its students and graduates with an on-campus site to pursue their career goals through career advising.
