Tips for Job Seekers

Working a Job Fair – Job fairs give you opportunities to meet with representatives from many employers. The purpose of going to a job fair is not to ask for a job but to develop relationships that might lead to a job.

Comments from job seekers

  • “You all are true leaders in helping people find employment, thanks for all you do!”
  • “I’ve never had any one care as much as you do in preparing me for a job.”
