Feb. 11, 2015 GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Students will be able to make plans for both their short-and long-term future — and will be eligible to win a $500 scholarship — during Grand Rapids Community College’s Career Showcase on Feb. 17 and 18.

GRCC’s business department is hosting the third annual Career Showcase, which allows students to explore career possibilities in accounting, business and office administration, marketing, management and supervision, and fashion and interior design. Sessions will include an overview of GRCC’s Meijer Center for Business Studies, including programs of study, degree and transfer options, employment opportunities, and a time for students to ask questions.

“We organize this event to help our business students understand and appreciate the various careers that are available to them if they complete their program at GRCC,” said Felix Pereiro, department chairman. “While the showcase gives students a glimpse of their possible careers, they also will attend sessions designed to help them plan the immediate steps they’ll need to take to train for these jobs.”

Students who attend the sessions and complete an evaluation form will be eligible for a drawing to win a $500 scholarship to use at GRCC.

Sessions start at 9 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. on both days and will be held in the Meijer Center for Business Studies (on the second floor of the Main Building at 143 Bostwick Ave NE). If you anticipate a need for an accommodation, or have questions about accessibility, please call GRCC’s business department at (616) 234-4220 in advance of your visit.
