Rusty Skinner, CEO of CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion, said that now is the perfect season to secure good, gainful employment.
“Right now, our unemployment rate is low while at the same time, businesses are actively hiring, so job seekers have the advantage,” Skinner said. “There is no better time to meet in person with hiring managers and you can do that in one place, on one day, at no charge.”
Those planning to attend should bring printed copies of their resume and be prepared for on-the-spot job interviews. Appropriate attire is required: no flip-flops or casual sandals, t-shirts, shorts, jeans with rips or holes, or anything too tight, short, revealing or with profane language.
Candidates interested in updating their resume, preparing a 30-second “elevator speech”’ highlighting their skills and experience, and/or sharpening interview skills are encouraged to visit one of CareerSource CLM’s career centers for fee-free staff assistance. The centers are open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 2703 NE 14th St., Ocala; 683 S. Adolph Point, Lecanto; and 2175 NW 11th Dr., Chiefland.
