Preparations for the upcoming job fair are in full swing at Mesquite Works as they hold Job Fair at the Rising Star Sports Ranch in the Grand Ballroom on Tuesday, Aug. 27 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. This is the place to be for job seekers who want to find work and meet the employers face to face and to introduce themselves, present a resume and discuss jobs and possibly arrange for an interview.  Several local businesses accept on line applications at the job fair and there may be computers available to use.

As a non-profit corporation Mesquite Works provides free services geared toward helping people improve their ability to find good work.  There are free single-session classes offered by Mesquite Works including Interviewing Skills, Resume Building, Appropriate Work Attire and General Business Preparation.  For older people returning to work, these classes review and sharpen money-making skills.  For young job seekers, the classes provide new ideas and helpful ways to succeed in real life situations which can be the start of a profitable career.

Remember to send in those event notices, things are going to be happening that you’ll want folks to know about. Send them to terin.bbm@gmail.com so you can everyone know what’s happening with your group or club.
