"I would like to take this time to thank you for organizing and putting on today's JOB FAIR in Colorado Springs. This is the first time in my life that I have been un-employed and filed for un-employment. The JOB FAIR gave me the chance to be pro-active and to retain my self respect. Hopefully it will lead to something." Thank You, Sincerely Rene

Make the Job Fair Work for YOU! There is more to attending a Job Fair than just showing up. This workshop will guide you in how to research employers in advance, how to create a 30-second elevator pitch, how to develop your game plan for the job fair, how to talk with recruiters, the art of follow up, and why persistence pays!
