Comments from 2013 attendees:
"I got two interviews based on the companies and the positions that were provided at the career fair."
"The workshop I attended on Resume Writing was excellent. The presenter was outstanding as well as the take home resources he provided. Much more than I
"It was GREAT! I really appreciated that this was offered to the community FREE. It was a GREAT help to those of us caught in this dismal economy."
"Thank you--there were more positions at the level I need to be at than at most job fairs!"
"Since my career of 35 years has now been outsourced overseas, I am in search of a new field of employment that will offer earnings to support my current lifestyle. The Career Fair has given me a jump start in that direction. I really appreciated all the workshops that were offered and took advantage of as many as I could. Thanks so much!"
