An employment expo event for anyone looking for work, or for a career change, will be held in Salina this week.
Over 40 area employers will set up booths at the Salina Central Mall on Tuesday, accepting resumes and talking with prospective employees.
Anyone looking for work is encouraged to attend. There will be a wide cross section of employers this yea, from manufacturing to healthcare.
All job seekers are encouraged to bring a work history or resume with them so that they can be prepared to fill out applications. KansasWORKS will have their mobile unit on site in the west parking lot where applicants can complete online applications and get help with their resume. Applicants should dress as though they are going to have an interview- in effect any contact with an employer is an interview.
Job seekers can stop by the Workforce Solutions booth at the main entrance to practice their introductions and get tips on how to approach employers at their booths if they need help. Attending a Job Fair can be intimidating so job seekers should practice introducing themselves to employers and inquiring about what types of jobs they hire for.
Along with businesses seeking help, Salina Family Healthcare will be at the event to answer questions about the Affordable Care Act enrollment process.
The employment expo in Salina is the area’s largest annual job fair and it give applicants a unique opportunity to have contact directly with employers.
The employment expo, sponsored by OCCK, is this Tuesday at the Salina Central Mall from 11am- 4 pm.
