Job seekers can skip the online resume process and meet more than 30 potential employers at the Career Fair Wednesday, May 15 at the Wiesbaden Entertainment Center from 10 am to 2 pm.
Looking for a new job, or a new career, often seems overwhelming. So many employers with online applications use resume screeners and other software that limits the number of resumes they read and candidates they meet.
“Our role is to facilitate the connections between seekers and employers,” said Earl McFarland, Employment Readiness Program Manager. “We provide the venue and the resources and the applicants speak for themselves.”
Who Can Attend?
The career fair encourages all base ID cardholders looking for employment to attend.
Attendees should bring copies of their current resume and dress for live job interviews.
Employers are provided with table space for interactions as well as additional Employment Readiness staff to man the booths so that employers can speak with candidates on-the-spot.
Each job seeker is given a bag with the floor map of employers, interview tips and additional resource materials. Employment Readiness staff are also available to meet with seekers to review and offer tips on resumes. Job seekers can make any changes and print new resumes immediately.
“We’re giving (job seekers) the opportunity to really show what they can do,” McFarland said.
Why attend a Job Fair?
Over the years, the Wiesbaden area job fairs have attracted hundreds of job seekers and a variety of employers.
“We’re kind of the brokers who bring talented individuals to the employers,” McFarland said. “It’s our main drive to get these groups to network and start making connections for jobs and even, opportunities they may not have seen.”
McFarland plans to host another job fair in the fall and participate in the other fairs hosted by similar organizations. This event boats more than 30 vendors representing local and worldwide employment, contracts, home based business, volunteer and educational opportunities.
