Job Fair And Career Tips For Cleveland Job Seekers

1. The best way to relieve the anxiety of meeting an employer at a job fair is to already know what you are going to say. Have talking points and a 30 second summary of your work experience prepared in advance.

2. Great way to NOT get a job at the job fair you attend: look miserable and upset that you are there.

3. Guy likely to be promoted: "I did some research and found a few alternatives to our distribution problem."

4. Employers routinely say that some job fair attendees come to the event with no resume or will tell the employer their resume is on their phone. Neither of those scenarios gives the employer much to work with at the job fair and actually makes the applicant appear unprepared - a job offer killer. Bring many copies of your current resume to job fairs. Employers WANT you to apply, but need a resume from you.

5. Want to get promoted? Bring solutions to your business meetings. Not more problems.

5 New Ways To Stand Out At A Job Fair
Because job fairs are an excellent way to meet multiple employers all on the same day and dramatically increase your chances of getting a job offer there will be lots of people in attendance. With so much competition for employers' attention its important to find a way to stand out from all the other job seekers and make an impression on the employers you are most interested in. Here are 5 new ways you can stand out from everyone else at a job fair.
Read more here.

5 ways you can be successful at the job fairs listed here.
1. Whether you are attending a job fair in Cleveland or any other city you can expect to spend several hours there. Some job fairs can be particularly tough when you are having one interview after another for extended periods of time. Be sure to break away several times, drink water, have a light snack and wash your hands. This will help keep you energetic throughout the job fair.

2. Be professional and courteous to everyone at the Cleveland job fair you attend, not just with the recruiter or manager you are speaking with. Many recruiters are people watching and will take note of your behavior toward others. If you appear to be rude or flippant with others that behavior will not be forgotten when you approach the recruiter who quietly noticed it from afar.

3. At any of the Cleveland job fairs you attend be sure to get to the point immediately when you approach a recruiter. Additionally, have a well-prepared 20-30 second elevator speech prepared. Using fancy words and talk to impress the recruiter just shows a lack of focus. Simply state facts about your experience and cite examples from your work history in a succinct manner.

4. Consider attending the Cleveland job fairs you found on this page later in the day. This may sound counter-intuitive, since we have always been taught to show up early for an interview. Things are slightly different at a job fair though. It’s not uncommon for a long line of applicants to form at the front door of a job fair right before it begins. Then in Black Friday like fashion they all rush in to get to the recruiters first. This simply overwhelms the recruiters who can't keep up with the applicants. Let this first wave of applicants subside then approach the people you want to meet. This will give you a lot more one on one time with the job fair recruiters.

5. After your interviews and meetings at the Cleveland job fair you attend be sure to follow up. You can do this online if you wish and send another resume along with your thank you to the hiring manager(s) you met at the job fair. Thank the manager for her time and ask for another interview.

Can your physical appearance affect a job offer?cleveland Job Fairs

Here are some more tips about getting the job you want and (unfortunately?) they have nothing to do with your qualifications. Yahoo Finance posted an article titled "Ways Your Appearance Affects Your Paycheck". This article includes a group of individual studies and their findings on particular physical characteristics and their affect on how much you earn.

Some you may expect. Being tall, good looking, smiling, and dressed conservatively were all associated with higher salaries. However, there were a few you may not have expected such as being blonde, wearing makeup, or having excellent posture giving you a chance to make more money. Some studies said being overweight, short, or having facial hair can work against you.

Your physical appearance and its' affect on your job interview results isn't a new topic and it is generally agreed that interviewers do at least subconsciously judge job candidates by their overall physical appearance. Take the factors listed in the two articles listed below. Have you seen any of these factors in play during an interview?

Will How I Look Affect Getting Job Offers?

"Ways Your Appearance Affects Your Paycheck".

Physical Features That Will Make Your Paycheck Larger

 
 
Volunteerism As A Resume Builder
When you have been laid off, looking for work is automatically your new full time job. The problem that many unemployed people face though, is a form of discrimination against those who have a gap in their employment history. Those who have periods of time on their resume that show no full time job are often (wrongly) assumed to be not as qualified as someone who is currently working. Additionally, more and more companies are using employment screening software that follows a particular set of criteria and will often discard a resume that has employment gaps. That means the days of being able to explain your particular situation to another human being are long gone. (Yet another great reason to go meet recruiters face-to-face at a job fair.)

It's would also be very hard to prove you are being passed over for a position based on gaps in your employment, and even if you could, there is essentially no law or requirement that stops employers from doing it. The best thing to do is eliminate gaps on your resume. One way to immediately take care of that is to take any job, even a part-time or seasonal job, until you have found appropriate full-time work. Another option is volunteering. While Volunteering is unpaid work, it is work that can be listed on your resume in place of a full-time job, thus eliminating the employment gap potential employers may be concerned about.

Volunteering is as excellent a job search strategy as it is a community service. Not only are you contributing to your community, but you will make friends, and you may meet individuals that can assist you in finding a new job. Be strategic about how you volunteer your time, however. Yes, volunteer with an organization you believe in, but also look for opportunities to enhance your job skills (or learn new ones) and build your professional network.

Here is a list of places you can volunteer in Cleveland.

1. Cleveland Clinic
800.223.2273 ext. 56986 9500 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio 44195
Volunteer ambassadors serve on the patient floors by making rounds and assessing patients who might need special attention or visitors.

2. Cleveland MetroParks
2277 West Ridgewood Drive Parma, Ohio
Cleveland Metroparks has fun, educational and diverse opportunities for volunteers at various locations throughout the Park District and Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

3. BVU: The Center for Nonprofit Excellence
1300 East 9th Street Suite 1805 Cleveland, Ohio
BVU links volunteers to opportunities that address such issues as homelessness, the environment, crisis support, youth and families, people living with disabilities, seniors and many more.

4. The City Of Cleveland
Cleveland City Hall 601 Lakeside Avenue Cleveland, Ohio 216-664-2000
Volunteer opportunities include: Greater Cleveland Volunteers, Neighborhood Watch Program, Courtwatch: Helping Victims and the Justice System, and Cleveland Animal Control Services Volunteers.

5. Cleveland Museum of Art
11150 East Boulevard Cleveland, Ohio 216-421-7350
Volunteer contributions range from staffing the information desk and helping prepare special events to working at the annual Parade the Circle, serving as docents for school groups, and assisting in curatorial projects. Find a Cleveland job fair now!

 

What If You Need A Job RIGHT NOW?

"TQR - You have some good advice on your site about finding work, but I don’t think it is quick enough for me. I really need a job quickly. Like, right now. I am in big trouble with my bills. What if someone is desperate and needs to get a job immediately?" Jason L.

Jason: we would suggest that person spend today:


1. Contacting every temporary agency in his locality and asking who needs help tomorrow morning.

2. Calling his former bosses and peers and asking for work or leads.

3. Visiting every one of his previous employer’s competitors and asking for a job (or leads if there are no jobs).

4. Visiting the local unemployment office and asking for a job. Many times during the week there are employers set up at the unemployment office conducting interviews right there.

5. Visiting the Chamber of Commerce in his locality and ask for referrals to businesses that need help right now.

6. Calling or visiting his state representative’s office and asking for a referral to a business that is in need of help right now.

7. Applying for assistance through the Job Corp.

8. Contacting the Builder’s Guild of Western Pennsylvania and applying for an apprenticeship. The Guild pays apprentices full-time wages while training them in one of the building trades.

9. Speaking to a military recruiter about Reserve or National Guard opportunities. These are part-time commitments, but the short term training will keep a person employed full-time for several months.

10. Visiting the library and ask for the head librarian. These people are very well connected in the community and may know who is in need of paid help today.

Bonus: Go to a job fair! Job fairs are the best way to get a job fast. Job fairs vary in size, but you can find many that host 100+ employers who are all hiring. Connecting face to face with decision makers is a must when it comes to getting job interviews and offers; something that online job hunting fails to do, but job fairs naturally facilitate. It would take a job seeker months, if not years, to arrange 100 in person meetings with hiring managers if only conducting an online search. By attending a job fair you can quickly get your resume into the hands of company recruiters and dramatically speed up your job search versus waiting for someone to find your resume online. Find a job fair in your area here.

Take resumes with you everywhere you go and dress as if ready to work. Don’t forget to ASK for a job, not just advice or help!
