The economy is having a rough patch, but you don’t have to follow its path if you’re diligent and committed to attaining gainful employment.
Don’t get me wrong. Your plan of hitting the streets and filling out applications until your hand locks up has its benefits; likewise, submitting a dozen resumes a day online increases the chances that you’ll get that relieving and exciting call back for which you’ve been eagerly waiting. But when all else fails and you’re looking for another option to make ends meet, make sure to check out one of the most important resources that is so often overlooked: National Career Fairs.
