The Horticulture program at College of DuPage will host a free Horticulture Career and Job Fair from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 7, in the Technical Education Center, Room 1038, on the College’s main campus, 425 Fawell Blvd., Glen Ellyn.
Geared toward job seekers and community members seeking horticultural and landscaping services, this fair will provide opportunities for networking and employment in the horticultural industry. More than 40 employers will be on hand and COD representatives will be available to provide information on horticultural careers and the Horticulture program at College of DuPage.
