Career Fairs This Week!

This Thursday, March 19th, two career fairs are in town this week worth checking out.  As part of your job search strategy,  try to hit up both to maximize your potential!

Career and job fairs offer the opportunity to meet many employers.  Before you attend, be sure you know what employers will be there and what types of jobs they may be offering.

  • Also, it is important to know if the employers will actually be conducting interviews on-site, or if this is simply an opportunity to speak with employers and exchange your resume for their business cards and literature.
