From Grow Piqua Now: Reverse Job Fair in Piqua on August 26, 2014
  
 

Reverse Job Fair in Piqua, Ohio - August 26, 2014

 
Are you tired of not getting results from the typical job fair? Spending all day in a busy room where it is difficult to stand out whether you are an employer or job seeker? Well the Reverse Job Fair is the solution for you! The Reverse Job Fair takes the typical job fair and "reverses" it. We put Job Ready, Job Seekers at a booth that allows them to show off their knowledge, skills, and abilities while employers get to walk around and speak to qualified candidates. We have a 100% satisfaction rate with both job seekers and employers with comments like "Great idea and concept" and "Why would employers ever go to a typical job fair again?"

On Tuesday, August 26, 2014 from 10:00am - 2:00pm, the Ohio Dept. of Job and Family Services along with Grow Piqua Now, the Piqua Chamber of Commerce, and OhioMeansJobs - Miami County will be hosting the next Reverse Job Fair. This will be for job seekers and employers in the Skilled Labor, HR, IT, Accounting, Engineering, and Manufacturing fields at the Fort Piqua Plaza (http://www.thefortpiquaplaza.com/directions.html).

Employers - The Reverse Job Fair allows you to spend anywhere from 5 minutes to the entire Reverse Job Fair talking to qualified candidates to ensure a good fit and arrange future conversations. This coordinated event matches you with job seekers who have been pre-screened to the industry and skill level required. Job seekers are prepared to market themselves by attending mandatory workshops and by having real-world interaction with local business professionals, showing their dedication to finding a job. You can evaluate each job seeker and conduct on the spot interviews as rooms will be available.

Job Seekers - The Reverse Job Fair gives you the opportunity to meet face-to-face with local hiring employers. You will have a booth with space to showcase your knowledge, skills, and abilities so that you can really SELL yourself to each employer that walks by. We will prepare you to market yourself through mandatory resume, portfolio, and interviewing workshops as well as real-world interaction with local businesses prior to the event.
