In today's society, it can be hard to know where to search when it comes to job hunting. There are hundreds of job sites online which can make it tough landing a new position. Perspective employees might find more success with face-to-face interactions, which is what State Representative Sue Scherer and Workforce Investment Solutions is providing with a Community Job Fair in mid-July.
Larry Peterson is a Special Project Consultant with Workforce as he explains what their goal is when it comes to the job search.
Peterson says one thing that stands out at job fairs is whether or not perspective job seekers are prepared going into the search process.
Career Planner Shelby Valladares explains how Workforce is helping prepare career fair attendees with pre-job fair assistance.
There are also scheduled pre-fair workshops that focus on interviewing tips, how to dress, and strategies for making the best use of your time at the fair.
The Community Job Fair is slated for July 18 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Knight of Columbus Hall in Decatur. More information on the pre-fair assistance and workshops can be found at worknetdecatur.org.
