The Spring Job Career Fair at Volunteer State Community College will feature dress for success tips, as well as dozens of employers on site. All job seekers are invited to attend. Participants are encouraged to bring several copies of their resumes. The fair provides an opportunity for job seekers to talk directly with the people responsible for hiring at many area companies. There is still space available at the fair for recruiters and businesses. They should visit www.volstate.edu/Placement for details.

Men's Warehouse and Maurice's clothing stores will have staff at the event to advise job seekers on appropriate dress for an interview and even provide tips on how to properly tie a tie. Once again this year, the rolling Career Coach bus from the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development will be on site. The bus has career coaches for one-on-one counseling and many resources, including computer access for job searches. They offer on-site training in job search strategy, resume and cover letter preparation and interviewing skills.

The Spring Job Career Fair is free and open to all job seekers. It will be held in the gym at the Pickel Field House on Wednesday, April 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteer State Community College is located at 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin. For more information call 615-230-3307.
