San Antonio looking forward to job fairs

September 18, 2013 by  

As the economic recovery continues, San Antonio job seekers have a chance to meet with potential employers at upcoming job fairs. Two important events will be held in October of this nature – both of which will no doubt see the exchange of numerous digital business cards .

The first is a Choice Career Fairs event to be held from 11.00 am to 2.00 pm, on Thursday, October 10, at the Norris Conference Center. The center is located at 4522 Fredericksburg Road, and the fair has free parking and admission. Jobseekers are encouraged to preregister online and submit their resume in advance. Among the companies present will be State Farm Insurance, Valero, Epic Health Services, and Encore Capital Group. Applicants should be prepared to interview with a number of organizations.

A second such event, National Career Fairs, will take place the following Tuesday, October 15, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at a hotel, the Omni San Antonio. The building is located at 9821 Colonnade Boulevard. Jobseekers can get a list of all participating companies by registering online. They can also have their resumes reviewed over the net at no cost. New York Life, Aaron’s, and Primerica Financial Services will attend, and colleges will be there as well.

Job fairs give jobseekers a way to compare various companies, and even multiple positions within one company. In addition, the personal contact a jobseeker makes with a hiring person is one of the most important of all contacts. Event organizers could work with brochure printers to provide a list of companies to applicants, as well as tips on how to prepare a resume.
