Long Island folk to boost their networks

August 27, 2013 by  

It could be digital business cards at the ready tomorrow evening, when East Northport residents can attend the Long Island Career Fair to meet with potential employers and develop their network of business contacts.

The fair will be held at the Holiday Inn plainview, 215 Sunnyside Boulevard in Plainview. Sales managers will be on hand to interview and hire potential applicants for jobs for entry level to advanced sales and business development professionals.

The fair begins at 6:00 pm. Participants should wear professional attire and bring copies of their résumé, which can be printed at a local printing company.

Possible open positions include sales managers, directors, and executives in all types of sales positions including pharmaceuticals, medicine, insurance, advertising, retail, and financial. For more information, call (877) 865-6578.

Another way to network and find possible work is by attending the BNI Success by Referral Meeting and breakfast which will be held at 7:00 am, also tomorrow, at the Celebrity Diner located at 312 Jericho Turnpike in Syosset.

This event has been organized for the benefit of those who are tired of cold calling, find advertising too expensive, and want to build relationships with other professionals based on respect and trust. It should also be a good way to practice talking to other professionals in an informal environment.

BNI has chapters all over the nation and more than 47 countries. Admission is $15 per person. For more information about the event, call (516) 364-1970.
