When you are job hunting, career fairs and expos can be a great place to find your next opportunity. On Wednesday, October 2nd, there will be a Job Expo taking place at the Holiday Inn in Manhattan from 10 am to 2 pm. There will be employers present from a variety of fields including healthcare, education, insurance and retail. Employers will be looking for the right candidates for jobs in diverse areas including sales, management, finance, customer service and information technology.
Although you are coming to a career fair, you still need to be in “interview mode.” For example, wear business attire and speak in a professional manner. When you are speaking with hiring managers, sell your skills and experience relating to the position. If you are interested in a healthcare job, don’t focus on working in another field. During a job fair, you only have a few minutes to speak to each hiring manager. Before you finish your conversation, you want the employer to feel that you are the best candidate for the job. You should appear bold and confident that your skills are a good match for the position. In fact, ask the hiring manager if you can follow up with them and possibly set up a formal interview.
For this job fair, you can register online directly on the Job Expo site.
