The Loudoun Workforce Resource Center’s first industry-based Career Fair of the year will be held Wednesday, Feb. 9, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Leesburg.
The event was postponed Jan. 27 because of the snowstorm.
Six staffing/service providers will be on site promoting a variety of job opportunities in accounting, administrative support, general labor, airport baggage claims and airport food services. Featured employers include AirServ, @Work Personnel Services, Gate Gourmet, Kelly Services, Manpower and Veterans Management Services Inc.
The companies promote contract, temporary, temporary-to-permanent and direct hire positions. Advantages to job seekers include positions with flexibility, transition into permanent employment, and opportunities to gain experience and additional skills. These positions are ideal for those who want to try out a new career and make contacts with potential permanent employers.
Prior to attending the Career Fair, participants are encouraged to stop by the Resource Center for a résumé critique session and pick up a Job Fair Tips handout. Free workshops are offered on résumé writing, interview skills, Microsoft Word and Excel basics, and job searching with social media.
