SEWELL, N.J. – In preparation for the Gloucester County MEGA Job Fair to be held on Friday, October 11, from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon at Rowan College of South Jersey in Sewell, the Gloucester County Workforce Development Board is offering interested residents free workshops to help prepare for the job fair.
“Going into a job fair can be overwhelming, whether it is your first time or you’ve done it before,” Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said. “There are many employers seeking workers or on-the-spot interviews. The free job fair workshops are a great way to prepare yourself and learn new skills to present your best self to potential employers.”
Freeholder Heather Simmons, Liaison to the Department of Economic Development, said that the workshops gives attendees of the job fair an advantage with strategies and tips on how to navigate the event.
“These free workshops are a great way for job seekers to get a feel for what will be happening at the fair and what they should expect from employers,” Simmons said. “Attendees will learn strategies such as networking, social media techniques, and how to use keywords on resumes that will catch an employer’s attention and make them stand out.”
