Tips For Job Seekers

  • Dress for the job you want.  Many of the companies are sending their top hiring rep to the Work Local First Job Fair.  The way you look when you meet them is a significant factor in how they judge your candidacy.
  • Bring plenty of resumes.  Make sure you've got enough business cards, resumes, work samples and all other components of your job-seeking portfolio to hand out.  And make sure those samples are thoroughly edited and spell-checked to be free of mistakes.
  • Don't be shy.  Employers come to the Work Local First Job Fair to meet people and tell them about their companies.  Shake as many hands as possible, even those representing places you've never considered working before.  You never know what connection will lead to your next position.
  • Listen and learn.  Take advantage of all the free resources available at the Work Local First Job Fair, including seminars, resume critiquing and more.  Knowledge is power during a job search, and you want to make sure you accumulate as much of it as possible.

Think Local First!

Remember, when you shop, when you dine, and even when you shop online: Think Local First!

Then remember to think about ways to go even farther.
  • Give local first
  • Think green always
  • Think global next
