North­eastern Uni­ver­sity will hold its first job fair for local res­i­dents on Wednesday, with hun­dreds of avail­able jobs up for grabs.

We are com­mitted and ded­i­cated to being a good neighbor and to pro­vide resources and sup­port to the sur­rounding com­mu­ni­ties,” Cheryl Whit­field, Assis­tant Vice
Pres­i­dent of Talent Man­age­ment & Orga­ni­za­tional Devel­op­ment, said today in a phone interview.

The fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Curry Stu­dent Center, Whit­field said. A number of ven­dors, such as Barnes & Noble, Sta­ples, and Coca Cola will be present, as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives from job training organizations.

Entry is free, and the school is offering prizes including printers, scan­ners, and a Nook.

Whit­field said that the pre­req­ui­sites for jobs vary — some require a col­lege degree, others do not.
