WIN Tips – Make The Most Out of Your Career Fair Experience

WIN logoWIN-TIPS – Job Search Tips

 

Make The Most Out of Your Career Fair Experience.

JobLINC Career Fair-July 25, 2013

Career Fair success lies in effective preparation, and communication. Make sure to research the employers you want to visit: learn about them, the positions they’re looking to fill, and what type of candidates they’re looking for.

Tip:  Arrive with a positive   attitude

Have your 30 second commercial or “elevator speech”   ready.  Don’t forget to network with other Job Seekers attending the   Career Fair, they may become good networking contacts, so get their contact   information to follow up at a later date.

Tip:  Bring several clean,   un-frayed copies of your resume.  Or, take the approach to get a   business card and email your resume to the recruiting individual.

Fact: Employers only look at resumes an average of 10 seconds. Make   sure you’re leaving employers with the impression – Hire Me! Do not approach   the Company representative with resume in out-stretched hand.  Approach,   introduce yourself, learn what types of positions they are recruiting for and   have some discussion about your qualifications if appropriate.  Allow   the Company representative to ask for your resume, and offer to send a copy   electronically.

Tip:  Do your research!

The more you know about a company, the more you can converse   with the company representative and the more memorable you will be.  If   there is a line to their table, circulate around to others to let the crowd   die down if possible and work your way back to their location.

Tip:  Get the interviewer’s   business card.

If you are called for an interview, you will want to follow up   with a letter that reinforces the points you made and the facts you learned.

Tip:  Maximize, Maximize, Maximize!

The lines might be daunting but don’t fail to maximize this   opportunity. Talk to every company that fits your experience and ambitions.   If you meet with 20 recruiters or hiring managers, at the end of the day you   will know 20 people by name. That sure beats sending a blind resume to   “Human Resources Director.”

Tip:  Plan a few key questions!

Be ready to ask intelligent questions like asking how your   skills might be utilized within the framework of the company and by asking   questions about relevant news within that organization. Make sure to ask the   recruiter what he or she likes best about the corporate culture to better   assess if that company is right for you.

Tip:  Wear Proper Business Attire

First impressions count!  Business dress, clean and   pressed, is always appropriate, limited jewelry, polished shoes, clean and   neatly manicured hands, little to no perfume (some are sensitive to   scents)…if you are a smoker, do not smoke before the Career Fair, but if you   must, wash hands and brush your teeth to freshen your breath before   entering.  Smile!

Tip:  After the Career Fair

Make notes during or immediately after the Career Fair   regarding any conversations upon which you may need to follow up.  Write   thank you notes and/or send resumes to anyone with whom you had conversations   relative to a position with their Company.

Bank On Memphis Celebrates Financial Literacy Month in April

Budgeting, Credit Repair feature of April 26 event @ Court Square

Memphis, Tenn. (April 12, 2013) – Bank On Memphis is celebrating National Financial Literacy Month in April with a series of financial literacy workshops culminating with an April 26 - 11:30-1:30 event at Court Square in Downtown Memphis.

Several Bank On Memphis partner financial institutions and credit counseling services will be available to discuss savings and checking account options, as well as tips for credit repair. The National Foundation for Credit Counseling recently released the results of its annual Consumer Financial Literacy Survey noting that, among its findings, only 40 percent of adults have a budget and track spending. Separately, credit data management firm Transunion Interactive Inc. noted that the Memphis metro area had the lowest consumer credit score among major metropolitan areas.

“Results like that demonstrate the need for education around financial literacy, especially personal finance, is greater than ever,” said Terica Lamb, coordinator for the Bank On Memphis initiative and manager of Community Outreach and Financial Empowerment for Shelby County Trustee David Lenoir.

The April 26 event is being held in conjunction with the Downtown Memphis Commission’s Downtown Alive! Rain date is May 3.

Entertainment at Downtown Alive! will include artists from Overwater Entertainment between 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Also, the Memphis Public Library’s JobLINC Mobile Career Center will be on-site during the event. JobLINC, a Bank On Memphis community partner, provides listings to available jobs, aids in locating training opportunities, one-on-one assistance in job searches and job readiness workshops.

Preceding the April 26 event Bank On Memphis representatives will conduct a number of free financial literacy classes on personal finance and budgeting around the county. For a complete list of those events, go to the ‘Event Calendar’ at http://shelbycountytrustee.com/calendar.aspx.

Bank On Memphis provides financial literacy and financial access through a public, private and non-profit collaboration. The program was launched locally by Memphis Mayor A C Wharton and Shelby County Trustee David Lenoir.

Laptops available at all Memphis Public Libraries

Memphis Public Library

Laptops for Checkout at All Memphis Public Library Locations
By: Marcey Evans

Books aren’t the only things library customers can check out. Now, the “smartest” card in your wallet offers access to laptops which can be checked out for internal use at any library branch system wide.

No line. No waiting. Customers needing to use computers no longer have to wait on the next desktop computer. They can use these printer-ready laptops equipped with current software such as Microsoft Office 2010.

“Come, check them out, and use them,” advised JobLINC Services Manager Robyn Stone, who helped to secure the mobile computers for public use. “We are expanding access with these laptops. While we have hundreds of computers, they were not enough. We have WiFi access at each (library) location, and we have the resources to satisfy our customers’ need to know.”

More than 170 laptops were purchased for Memphis public libraries through the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), a federal grant meant to increase access to health information, workforce development training, financial literacy resources, and job search assistance in urban areas. After state government secured federal dollars, the City of Memphis also contributed to the fund, which totaled more than $200,000. This gift was given to the Library system to “bridge the gap between Tennessee’s impoverished and unemployed,” as outlined in the grant’s overall objective.

To reach this ambitious goal, each laptop has icons that are connected to websites on the aforementioned topics, along with a hyperlink to the JobLINC web page (http://www.memphislibrary.org/joblinc). Connecting people to employers and other resources, this web page offers job readiness information, career planning and assessment, classes and workshops, facts for small businesses, test preparation and practice, computer tutorials, and connections to several other opportunities.

To check out a laptop, customers must be 18 years of age with a Library card and valid Tennessee driver’s license or government-issued picture identification. Users must complete a one-page laptop registration form and review the checkout policy with a librarian.

“We’re here to help you,” Stone said. “We just want customers to take advantage of this opportunity to become familiar with this technology.”

For more information on how to check out a laptop, call your local library branch or visit any circulation desk. At Central Library, laptops are available on the third floor in the Business/Sciences Department.

“We only ask that you bring a flash drive, if you’re working on your resume,” Stone added.
