As the improvement in the national job market continues steadily, Rasmussen College, a privately owned, regionally accredited college, is assisting students, community members and graduates in taking the important next steps in their careers by presenting a free countrywide Community Career Fair.The twice-yearly event will take place from February 24-28 at 20 Rasmussen College campuses across the United States. The career fair was developed to help job seekers get in contact with employers and individuals who are already employed to advance their career prospects.
In addition to having the opportunity to network with employers, those who attend Rasmussen College’s Community Career Fair will have access to panel discussions conducted by professionals in the human resources industry, LinkedIn training, expert dress consultations, mock interviews and resume reviews.
The VP of public benefit initiatives and career services at Rasmussen College, Tamryn Hennessy, said that it is now more vital than ever for people to consider their careers as a process that lasts a lifetime.
She added: “Long-term, full-time employment is no longer a guarantee, so it is important for job seekers to stay on top of their interviewing skills and keep LinkedIn profiles and resumes up to date while continuously networking with employers.”
She went on to say that Rasmussen College wants everyone to take that vital next step in their career and to have the resources and knowledge to do so, and the Community Career Fair will help prospective students accomplish this task.
To help community members, graduates and students prepare for the career fair and stand out from the crowd, Rasmussen College challenges participants to send in a cover letter and resume ahead of time through its Career Challenge program.
Participants are even encouraged to record a mock interview, send it in and have it critiqued by career services professionals before they appear in front of actual employers. The career challenge is open to the public and there is no fee.
Hennessy concluded: “This year’s fair really has something for everyone looking to take the next step in his or her career.”
