The April 25, 2013 Job Fair was a great success!
The Bob Duncan Center was buzzing as over 900 job seekers passed through the 80+ employer booths and 12 resource agency tables. Participants gained useful insight and cutting edge advice in the Networking Basics, Interviewing Strategies, and Impact Statement workshops!
Read what one job seeker had to say about an Arlington Answers fair:
I attended the job fair you organized on March 29. My expectations were low. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to you for all the hard work you obviously put into this one day! You were well-organized. All the volunteers were friendly and helpful. That is so much appreciated–especially for those of us who are unemployed. I learned so much from the different speakers and my resume critiquer. These are things which I am already applying to my job search.
Thank you so much for serving your community in this much-needed way!
