Instead of pounding the pavement or searching for jobs online, Victoria College students can have the jobs come to them during the 2014 Victoria College Career Fair on March 26-27. More than 30 businesses and agencies will be represented at the Career Fair from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the VC Student Center.
