The dog days of summer mean that the month of August in San Antonio is all about keeping cool. There are also some important career fairs this month to help those who need to focus on the next job opportunity.
1. August 14th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. will bring the Choice Career Fair to the Norris Conference Center. It is located at 4522 Fredericksburg Rd at the Wonderland of the Americas Mall. This is a free event and you can register online with the link above to get a viewing from the hiring managers ahead of the date. Career fairs offer a chance to meet face-to-face with a variety of company representatives at one location and make a positive impression. It also means that you can collect a quick assessment of the various job positions that are available plus a great networking opportunity. There are job openings in the medical device, sale representative and customer service positions among many others.
For those living in Houston, the career fair will be held August 5th and in Dallas July 31st.
2. August 25th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. will be the San Antonio Career Fair held at the Omni San Antonio Hotel. The location is 9821 Colonnade Blvd. Register online for a preview of the employers who are participating and for resume tips. The sponsors of this event are Job Finders and Aaron's. And note that your online resume will be viewed by exhibitors at the event also.
The strategy for career fairs is to be prepared. Bring copies of your resume and be ready to interview with the best possible outlook. In addition to looking professional and ready to present your skills, you also need to gather a preview of the employers and learn enough about the job openings to be ready with your own list of questions. In other words, do your homework.
Best wishes to all job seekers.
