Irvine, CA, June 21, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Stanbridge College, a technical college that offers training in Healthcare and Information Technology, hosted over 40 representatives from Southern California healthcare employers at the Vocational Nursing Career Fair on June 6th.

Subsequently, Ms. Brinkmann stated that she received four more interviews as a result of the connections made at the career fair.

Arman Goshtasbe, Assistant Director of Career Services at Stanbridge College also emphasized the positive results of the career fair. He stated, “One student came to me and within 30 minutes had two interviews.”
