Capitol Broadcasting Company and numerous Triangle companies came together at the WRAL Capital Area Career Expo on Thursday, August 1, 2019, to talk and share information with job seekers.
Over 2,700 job seekers came out to the event at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh. Corp Business Development Associate Courtney Phillips and Corp HR Administrator/Recruiter Na’Tasia Robinson represented CBC at the company’s booth.
“Na’Tasia and I had a line at the table the ENTIRE time. We could barely catch our breaths!” said Phillips.
Phillips shared information about the sales side of CBC with job seekers while Robinson spoke to the many other jobs in various CBC divisions.
“Sometimes you can forget just how well respected CBC is until you attend a career fair and you have job seekers wait in line for 10+ minutes just to speak with you and have them tell you how much they would love the opportunity to work for us. It’s truly humbling,” said Phillips.
The candidates ranged from recent grads who had received their degree a week prior to folks who are in senior management roles right now but are looking for a change.
“Career Expos are an excellent opportunity for us to get in front of people that might not have known about of our openings otherwise,” explained Phillips. “All of these people are really putting themselves out there, and I enjoy being able to help people find a career that is the right fit for them and gets them excited.”
