Are you Ready NOW!?
Registration for this Ready NOW! event is closed.
If you are looking for work, have experience in the manufacturing sector and are able to commit time to job search success, you’re Ready NOW!
Ready NOW! is a 3-day employer and job seeker event focused on pairing qualified individuals with local employers who have open manufacturing positions.
Unlike a traditional job fair, Ready NOW! is a series of activities designed to prepare job seekers for a successful job search and full-time employment. Participants will attend workshops on team building, resume writing, career exploration and personal success; debrief with a group of fellow job seekers and employers; and practice presenting a positive, employable image through mock interviews. At the end of the week, job seekers who have fulfilled all the requirements will obtain a Certificate of Completion and the opportunity to interview with two of the participating employers.
Dates: Wednesday, March 6 through Friday, March 8, 2013
