If you are looking for a career, or just looking for a change, then check out the August 2015 Hawaii Career Expo at the Neal S. Blaisdell Exhibition Hall. It will feature jobs across all industries and all levels, from entry to executive.
Emy Yamauchi-Wong, Manager of ALTRES Office/Professional and ALTRES Technical, lists reasons to go: “In a world of online applications, sometimes a little face-time with company reps is what you need to one-up competition. Even if you’ve already submitted your resume to a couple dozen companies, it’s still hugely beneficial to attend a job fair where recruiters can put a face to the name in the sea of hundreds of applications they receive. And when you meet reps from staffing agencies such as ALTRES Staffing, your chances of landing that dream job increase even more. One stop at ALTRES (altres.com ) can tap you into literally thousands of job opportunities. Plus, working with a staffing agency is like having extra sets of eyes looking for jobs for you.”
Yamauchi-Wong has some quick dos and don’ts to improve your chances of success:
DON’T bring the family
DO your research
DO come prepared
DO keep an open mind
DON’T forget to follow up
