WAGES Provides Perfect Opportunity to Help Link Prospective Employees with Businesses
Wayne Action Group for Economic Solvency, Inc (WAGES) is having a Career Fair at the Herman Park Center in Goldsboro on June 30th from noon to 3pm. All job seekers are welcome to come and meet prospective employers for networking and interviews. Here’s your opportunity to get out there and network. Bring your A-game!
In addition to those tracked in traditional unemployment statistics, there are millions of other Americans who are under-employed or working part-time when they would rather have a full-time position.
“Attending the WAGES Career Fair is an efficient way to get some face-time with representatives of a number of local companies” says Rob Das, Assistant Director for CSBG at WAGES.
“We expect to have displays from a variety of medical, industrial, sales and financial services organizations that are looking to hire the best and brightest candidates they can find.”
Below are just a few of the companies you will see next Wednesday.
North Carolina Troops to Teachers
Federal Bureau of Prisons
Employment Security Commission
Wayne Community College (2 tables)
Verizon Wireless/Cellular Sales
First Command Financial Services
O’Berry Neuro Medical Treatment Center
Home Health and Hospice
There will also be skill-sharpening seminars going on for the public to increase their knowledge of current techniques that can help them score an interview and land a job. Wayne Community College’s Lori Waller will conduct three seminars that last 30 minutes each. At noon the topic will be resume writing. At 1 pm the class will focus on networking. And at 2pm the final seminar will discuss interviewing skills. Ms. Waller is the Director of Cooperative Education and Coordinator of the WORKS Employability Lab. She brings a wealth of teaching and academic experience in helping students successfully transition from school to work.
According to Dr. Marlee Ray, Executive Director at WAGES, “this is a great opportunity to help the community understand the diverse employment prospects available here in Wayne County and the surrounding area.” There is no charge to participate in the Career Fair. We encourage all potential job seekers to dress for success, bring copies of their resume and business cards, and come see the exciting opportunities available at the WAGES Career Fair.
