Update for the Memphis March 24th Job Fair at the Beautiful Botanic Garden

>> Monday, March 29, 2010

It was a beautiful Wednesday out at the Memphis Botanic Garden where the birds were singing, flowers blooming, and the sun was shining. It was definitely, a better day for a career fair than it was two days prior, compared to the Atlanta Fox Theatre where it was raining and snowing. Despite the weather conditions that were present for Atlanta, there were still some 3000 job seekers present. Memphis had a little bit less, but a much happier crowd. With the weather in agreement we had roughly 2000-2300 job seekers.

In partnership with AARP and WiserWorker.com the Memphis event had many jobseekers that were satisfied with the event. AARP offered help to those that wanted help with their resume, needed suggestions, and/or tips…this was open to all ages. There were many jobseekers leaving with positive feedback. Several were surprised that we actually had companies with positions to fill-not just schools that were looking to recruit. The Census Bureau itself had over 10,000 positions that they were looking to fill, another company had 30 positions, and another company needed to fill two shifts. Needless to say there were positions that needed to be filled and those that did not find anything are looking forward to attending our next Memphis job fair event on July 21st at the AgriCenter to find what we have to offer.

The best part about attending job fairs is that you never know what you are going to find. The companies are there to find potential employees and you are looking for an employer, don’t be afraid to talk to them. Talk to the employers, ask questions, and find out what they have to offer and if you are interested hand the employer your resume. Talk to every employer/company present. You never know…it could be the company you end up working for!

Keep updated for the next job fair information.
