NASHUA – Justin Kane, of Salem, was dressed sharply Thursday as he sat and filled out an application at a large table at the Mount Washington College Job Fair.

More than 30 employers and agencies filled three rooms on the upper floor of the college’s wing on Amherst Street. A handful of prospecting job seekers mingled with presenters at tables as the newly seated college president, Frank Mulgrew, watched from a hallway.

“It’s been a great partnership, being able to bring companies in here to have students and others in the community come in and find employment,” he said.

Maureen Znoj, vice president of operations at the college, said this is the third job fair the school has held this year, with previous ones in Salem and Manchester. Last year, the college’s job fair in Salem went so well that they decided to do the same at other locations.

“We partner with New Hampshire Employment Security,” Znoj said. “The college is very invested in helping students find jobs. Partnering allows us to fulfill a civic responsibility and also allows students to benefit from it.”

Kane, who’s recuperating from surgery, said he has been filling his down time with interviews and as many job fairs as possible.

“I’ve been to about four or five job fairs,” he said. “Within the last two weeks, I’ve had five interviews each week.”

Zane said he was pursuing a degree in business administration and marketing, but a recent deployment to Afghanistan with the Marine Corps Reserves put that on hold.

He said he plans to go back to school part time while working full time.

As for the job fair, he said, “It’s got a few more opportunities than some of the other ones I’ve been to.”
