If so, an upcoming job fair in Sharonville could have the answer you've been looking for.

If you're attending a job fair, use these tips for success:
- Get answers on how the job fair will work before attending. Every job fair is different. Some hold on-site interviews to extend job offers on the spot while others combine networking with the potential for interviews at a later date. Knowing how the job fair will work gives you a sense of what to expect.
- Be patient and prepared. According to JobNewsCincy.com, employers will see "...hundreds of applicants during the course of the day, and if you are not prepared and do not meet the minimum expectations, you will be eliminated quickly."
- Proofread your resume and take multiple copies of it to the job fair. Each employer may request a copy.
- Dress for success to make a professional first impression.
- Prepare to "tell me about yourself" when visiting each prospective employer. You may have only 30 seconds to explain who you are, what you have to offer, and why the company should interview you. According to JobNewsCincy.com, when attending any job fair, you should "Be ready to give a brief, 30-second introduction of yourself to employers; include your name, career status, type of position you are seeking and why you are interested in their company."
