So today I went to a "Career Fair" hosted by the Unemployment office. I was told that I needed to come dressed like I'm going to an interview as the places will typically interview and hire on the spot. Awesome right?
Well I show up there in a nice dress shirt, tie, dress pants, dress shoes, looking like a prime employee. Let me tell you I was probably the only one there "dressed for success". Walked around for 20 minutes stopping at every employer's table and got the same response from every table. "Go to our website and you can see all the available position. Just apply online." Well that's great. I could've figured that out by myself. What was the point in dressing up and going for this information.
Needless to say I am a little disappointed. So back to applying online. Also checking with some friends and family for jobs available and references. Networking is everything right? Well not a whole lot going on other than that on the job front. Like I said in a previous post it was crazy to see how many people were at the job fair. Sad to see how many people are effected and looking for jobs desperately now.
