December Job Fairs - Holidays are for Merriment and Networking

The holidays are here! What better time to network with friends and families as you gather for holiday parties and fun!

A recent survey by Linkedin showed that 85 percent of respondents secured their current job through networking. Similar surveys have had similar results. The lesson: if you need a job, talk to others!

Pre-Holiday Weeks a Great Time to Job Hunt

The coming of Thanksgiving and Christmas means more than turkey and presents. It means jobs. And lots of them.

Retailers expect to add as many holiday jobs as they did last year, over 738,000 across the nation. The difference this year is that many of those positions are shifting from the checkout line to the warehouse.

As retailers continue to see an uptick in online shopping, they must meet that demand with more employees at call centers, warehouses and on delivery routes.
