Customer Testimonial
 
"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 

 
 
The Pikes Peak Workforce Center's Fall Job Fair is sponsored by KKTV 11 News!

REGISTER HERE.  Scroll to the bottom of this page for a list of hiring employers planning to attend.

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!




 

CLOTHING RESOURCES
 
At the Women’s Resource Agency (WRA) boutique, female job readiness clients with a pending job interview or hiring event will receive one-on-one coaching from a Personal Shopper and be able to select an appropriate interview suit. Outfits include accessories and are free for clients to keep.


 Individuals lacking appropriate clothing to wear to the job fair can contact Ecumenical Social Ministries (ESM) to see if they are eligible to receive a professional outfit.


Please check this page often because hiring companies will be added as they sign up for the Fall Job Fair!
