One of the more difficult tasks facing any student is that of finding a job. Information on jobs is scattered all over the Internet and newspaper classified sections, in some not very consistent ways, which makes the task of finding available work that much more difficult.
Even if you do find it, you might be unsure what to do with it. Perhaps you’re not comfortable with job interviews, or you’ve never been on one and aren’t certain how to handle yourself; perhaps you’ve never written a resume or curriculum vitae, and don’t know where to start.
Job fairs are excellent resources for the job-seeking individual, as they have what you’re looking for all set up in one place – resume help, interview help, and potential employers who are looking for someone just like you to fill the positions they have to offer.
On May 6th, 2004 Career-A-Palooza hits The National Trade Centre at the Automotive Building at Exhibition Place in Toronto, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Potential employers from a wide variety of industries will be on-site in search of people to hire.
Admission to the event is free, though a donation of non-perishable food items for the Daily Bread food bank will be greatly appreciated. It is suggested that you pre-register via the website, and that the event should be treated as a job interview – which means appropriate dress, and that you come prepared with copies of your resume to give to the on-site interviewers.
If you’re not sure how to compile a resume or how you should comport yourself at the interviews, the Career-A-Palooza website has some handy tips for both.
