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

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!
