Strategies for interviewing
It’s spring, and people are looking for jobs. There are a number of upcoming job fairs to help.
The recent Hire 253 job fair saw 859 registered job seekers, according to Goodwill of the Olympics & Rainier Region, which hosted the event at its Milgard Work Opportunity Center.
The event, held quarterly, focuses on entry-level jobs to help end homelessness. Its next event will be in July, on a date still to be determined.
