Job And Career Networking Events In August 2015

Whether you’re thinking of moving to the Raleigh / Wake Forest / Cary area, or have been here for years, sometimes there is a reason or desire to change jobs and/or career paths. There are multiple job and career fairs held through out Wake County each and every month, and are a welcome option for reaching out to explore other job opportunities in the area, and do some career networking. Networking events and job fairs are very important as one navigates the options that are out there. These events can be a more relaxed way to expose your skills, attributes and overall successes and to share with others how you can be an asset to their team verse that of a “normal” job interview. Many people think ‘I look ok on paper, but if they could just meet me, they’d know I was perfect for the job’. Well, here is your opportunity!!

Sometimes bringing a friend along is a good idea for these events if you are typically shy or reserved walking into an environment where you’ll know no one. Be sure to bring someone who adds to your confidence level, who know how to maintain professionalism, and who will be a true support. Just keep in mind to network at these events, and not spend the whole time talking with just your friend. You can do that anytime.

This is a time to get to know other people, ask them what they do, why they do what they do, how long they’ve been in the business, and if they know of any current or future opportunities. Tell them what you’ve done in the past, if you’re new to the area, what your skills and experience is in, and why you’re thinking of getting into another industry (if that’s the case) or what you’re looking for in another job opportunity.

Be confident. Be proud. Be you.
