Bureau County job fair to feature local employers

Posted by wlpo on September 29, 2013

High unemployment does not mean you won’t find a job; it means you will have to be competitive.  There is a Just Hire One Job Fair Wednesday at the Bureau County Metro Center.

You will be able to give your résumé to area companies and maybe be interviewed for a position.  Which is why you should arrive prepared according to Pam Furlan of Business Employment Skills Team.  That means you have to change out of your pajamas or torn jeans and sweatshirt.  Furlan says employers will notice the way you are dressed before they can read your work history or education.

Dress pants and a polo shirt would be a good outfit.  You will also want to bring copies of an updated résumé that has been proofread.

Furlan says you will be able to meet people looking to fill manufacturing, healthcare, and retail jobs.  The job fair is Wednesday from nine to noon.

Learn more by listening to an interview at the WLPO AM and FM news page.
