A Decatur organization is readying for a big job fair in the mid-week and their leader is giving job seekers some pointers on making that resume look a little sharper and stand out a little more.

 

Larry Peterson with Workforce Investment Solutions in Decatur indicates it is important your resume be specific with what kind of job you are looking for. He says anyone can make blanket statements about what they are looking for but your resume will stand out if you cater it to the job you are applying for.

 

 

Employers want to see how you can benefit their company. Peterson indicates it is oftentimes a case by case basis and encourages anyone with questions about their resume to attend their workshop at their location in Decatur Tuesday (today) from 9 am to 10 am.

 

 

The job fair for job seekers is Wednesday, September 11 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Decatur. You can get more information on the employers that will be present by stopping into the Workforce Investment Solutions location at 757 West Pershing Road.

 

Again, the resume workshop leading up to the job fair is Tuesday (this) morning from 9 am to 10 am. Peterson says you do not have to be attending the Wednesday job fair to get help on your resume. 

You can get more information by calling 217-875-8751.
