“With the improving economy, more employers are hiring for a variety of positions from entry level to management,” said William Sleight, Director of Livingston County Michigan Works! “Job seekers who are prepared for the unique environment of a job fair will have the best chance to make a favorable impression at the event,” Sleight said.
Job seekers should be prepared to provide a current resume or work history and to complete an application. Some companies will be conducting brief interviews at the event.
In addition to meeting directly with employers, job seekers will have the opportunity to attend workshops that will help them make a successful first impression, improve their resume, and learn LinkedIn basics. As a special service, human resources professionals will be available throughout the day to provide a quick critique of job seekers’ resume. A bank of computers will be available so
