8th Annual Power of Work Career Fair

All are welcome to attend the 8th Annual Goodwill-Easter Seals Power of Work Career Fair. The event is from 10 a.m. –2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 9.

There will be 40+ employers from the Twin Cities Metro recruiting for open positions. Some of these employers will be conducting on-the-spot interviews, so bring copies of your resume, dress professionally, and come prepared! This is a free event.

What sets the Power of Work Career Fair apart from similar events is one-on-one help from career fair navigators. They will help you identify employers that fit your skills and experience, learn to pitch your skills and practice answering difficult interview questions. The event features mock interviewers and an on-site computer lab to print your resume and a quiet room to rest and refocus between interviews.
