LANCASTER, Pa. - Job Fairs are a place where people can see multiple, potential employers all at once. People with CareerLink in Lancaster County say that first impression matters. In years past, they have said after their career fair employers tell them some applicants do not seem ready so, CareerLink created a seminar to help people get ready.
"It’s just really trying to get our customers ready for the job fair. How to market themselves. What to say to an employer, what not to say, what to wear," Andionne Smith, Director of Workforce Services.
The seminar is free to people who qualify and with a referral people can get the clothes they need from the program Suits to Careers.
"To know that I have had a hand in helping someone change their life, build their confidence, become the person they want to be and have some sort of starting point to start a career and provide for their families, it’s an amazing feeling," said Jessica Miller from Suits to Careers.
People need a referral for clothing by Friday.
Anyone is invited to the job fair on September 21 at Liberty Place in Lancaster. It runs from 10:00am-2:00pm.
