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!

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!



Professional Image Fair

The Pikes Peak Workforce Center, in conjunction with the Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy, Women’s Resource Agency, Discover Goodwill, Men’s Wearhouse and Peak Vista Community Center, presents the Professional Image Fair on Friday, September 26, 2014; 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. The event focuses on preparing you, the job seeker, to effectively communicate your value and professionalism to employers by providing haircuts, manicures and image consultations.

Walk-ins welcome- but you must be registered in Connecting Colorado at www.connectingcolorado.com.

Also presenting at 3:00 p.m. is Clinton Cooper, a motivational speaker, life coach and Social Worker, Cooper has a passion for people and for those who desire to transcend the ties which bind them; using hope as a catalyst and change as an opportunity to be more than your past choices by maximizing your today while being liberated from your yesterdays.
