In times when the economy is struggling, finding Reno area jobs
can take a little more effort. Reading the classifieds and turning in your resume may simply just not be enough. A more active approach is needed in order to secure employment.
Studies have proven that finding a job when unemployment is up can take as long as nine months of active searching. Because of this, many experts suggest attending job fairs as one important step that can make a big difference.
Job fairs allow would-be workers to maximize their time. With so many employers in one area, it is easy to speak with several actively hiring companies in one day. A good percentage of businesses even accept resumes or are willing to schedule interviews at these events.
Getting face time with an employer prior to a formal interview can also help get your foot in the door. Employers are able to get a first impression prior to anything formal, so remember dress as if you are going in for an interview and behave accordingly.
Those looking for Reno area jobs should consider attending the city’s Redevelopment Agency’s
free “Job Fair and Resource Expo” on Wednesday, November 12th. This event will take place between 10 a.m. and 4p.m. at the Reno Ballroom, which is located in the city’s downtown area on Center and Fourth Street.
According to the Reno Development Agency, the fair and expo event is an attempt to utilize community connections and utilize all of the resource they have to offer in order to help job seekers. The Agency has said that their major desire is to retain or create new Reno area jobs
Those who will attend will not only have the chance to meet with employers. They will also hopefully learn new job hunting skills.
Employers who are interested in attending the event and have available Reno area jobs,
whether they be full, part time or temporary positions, are encouraged to attend the event. The fair and expo will be free of charge, not only to job seekers, but also to businesses. The deadline for companies to sign up to participate is Wednesday, November 5th.
