Should I Bring a Resume?
Yes, bring your resume as many employers will be accepting them from potential employees. See courses offered through DWS and LDS ERS for assistance with resume preparation prior to attending the event.

Should I Dress Up?
Since first impressions are important, look your best. If you are in need of a haircut or a more professional look, visit our Cosmetology Salon at the Brigham City Campus prior to the event.

Will I Be Able to Meet with More Than One Employer?
Yes, but arrive early and allow plenty of time to visit multiple employers in the Job Fair and program areas in the Tech Expo.

Sponsoring agencies will be available to tell you about all the services they provide for you. BATC Registrar and Financial Aid Counselors will be available to answer questions regarding individual programs of interest, scholarships, and financial laid.
