Adam Kickish’s career as a loss prevention and safety manager was
unexpectedly derailed one afternoon when his boss called him into an
office and informed him that he was being laid off. Adam was told that
the lay-off had nothing to do with the quality of his work, but that the
company was failing and could no longer afford him.
Adam said, “There were so many people there, and the employers at each booth had collections of resumes as thick as phone books.” Adam had two personal goals for this job fair. First, he wanted to meet decision makers and get some kind of inside information about their company and them personally. That would be information he could use down the road if he applied for other jobs.
How Adam stood out.
