10 a.m. to 2 p.m.




Job fairs can be one of the best ways to meet with many different employers in one place on a given day.  Be prepared to network with representatives from local companies, various City, Federal, and State agencies offering career opportunities in a wide variety of fields.  Please dress professionally, bring multiple copies of your resume, and be prepared. Remember "A Successful Job Interview Means - Congratulations You're Hired!


Dressing For Success

You only have one chance to make a good first impression! An employer will size you up in a matter of 15 seconds as you walk into the room or up to an employer's table at a job fair. What you wear says a whole lot about who you are, or at least who you are presenting yourself to be. That's why what you wear to a job fair or job interview is extremely important! Whether you like it or not, the first impression that you make is visual. This means paying attention to ever little detail, from head to toe, is so important.
