CINCINNATI - Tri-State job seekers can get information about more than 1,000 open positions in the area at a job fair in Sharonville Tuesday.
JobNewsCincy.com is hosting a career fair at the Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Rd. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event, which will offer free parking and free admission, will have details about more than 1,000 open positions at all career levels from more than 35 local companies.
"People can come in and register and our staff really takes the time to talk to people and get to know what they need so we can steer then in the right direction," said JobNewsCincy.com General Sales Manager Connie Nelson. She added that anywhere from 800 to 1,000 attendees typically attend their job fairs.
The event sponsored by Mercy Health will bring employers like Aflac, Farmers Insurance, FedEx Ground Distribution, Brown Mackie College, Prudential, Medpace, Time Warner Cable, Secured Roofing, US Bank and more.
Prior to the job fair, there will be a free career workshop where candidates can learn more about how to find their dream job. The career workshop goes from 8:30 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. and human resources professional Shientra Noble will share some of her keys to success in job interviews.
"A number of professional people come in and don't realize what will be asked or what to expect, so it's great to have her there to give them pointers," Nelson said.
