Navigating a Career Fair

Job fairs can be big, crowded, and you do not get much of an opportunity to speak with companies because there is usually a long line of other candidates waiting behind you for their turn.

Successfully navigate a job fair to your advantage. Be strategic in how you manage it. Get tips on how to maximize your time before, during and after a job fair.

Navigating a Career Change

Do you dread going to work in the morning? If you don’t feel like you’re doing work you love anymore, it could be time for a career change.

Before you throw caution to the wind and quit your job, though, you should do some careful thinking to make sure you’re making the right decision—and prepare yourself to make the transition as smooth as possible. This workshop will cover the following:

  •  Why People Change Careers
  •  Signs Your Career Needs a Makeover
  • Steps to a Career Change
  • Transferrable Skills
  • Completing a Skills and Interest Assessment

Federal Bonding Program

The Federal Bonding Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, serves as a tool to secure the job placement of ex-offenders and other high-risk applicants by issuing Fidelity bonds to businesses who offer jobs to workers in “at risk” groups.

  • Justice involved individuals
  • Recovering substance abusers (alcohol or drugs)
  • Welfare recipients and other persons having poor financial credit, or who have declared bankruptcy
  • Economically disadvantaged youth and adults who lack a work history
  • Individuals dishonorably discharged from the military
  • Anyone who cannot secure employment without bonding service
