Workforce job fair rescheduled

By on June 28th, 2012

From Workforce Connection

Workforce Connection’s Job Fair which was postponed due to the threat of Tropical Storm Debby has been rescheduled for Thursday, July 19.

The job fair is open at no charge to anyone looking for work in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties. It will take place from 8 a.m. to noon at the College of Central Florida’s Klein Conference Center, 3001 S.W. College Road in Ocala.

Employers interested in taking part in the Job Fair must post open job orders with Workforce Connection through the Employ Florida Marketplace. There is no charge to participate but space is limited and will be available to employers on a first-come, first-served basis by calling 352-873-7939, ext. 1141.

A computer kiosk with Workforce Connection staff will be available for job seekers to apply for jobs and register with Employ Florida, the state’s premier online job bank.

Job seekers are encouraged to show up early and bring printed copies of their resume to hand to prospective employers.  A professional dress policy will be strictly enforced: anyone wearing flip flops, t-shirts, shorts, torn or ripped jeans or other inappropriate attire will not be admitted.

Participants should also come prepared with a one-to-two minute introduction or “elevator speech” highlighting work experience, training and abilities. Job Fair preparation tips can be found at Workforce Connection’s Job Candidates page at www.clmworkforce.com/careerSeekers.asp
