Commercial Trucking Career Fair at SUNY Canton, Sept. 12


CREST LogoSUNY Canton is seeking community members who are interested in earning a commercial driver’s license and are looking to start a driving career.

The Career Ready Education and Success Training (CREST) Center will be holding a career fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, in Halford Hall. The event will allow participants to register for upcoming training and learn about available job opportunities.
