Our economy is in a much better position than it was six years ago. The national unemployment rate has decreased in many states and
Baby-boomers are looking for more meaningful work after retiring from years of service in traditional corporate jobs and millennials continue to be optimistic about their futures, according to a 2014 Pew Research study.
In fact, “86 percent of job seekers who are already employed are looking for work outside their current occupations,” according to Fortune.com.
That’s why it’s important to take advantage of opportunities when they arise.
Rasmussen College hosts career fairs on its campuses across the country. The career fairs are open to the public
and they offer visitors a chance to meet employers from a wide array of industries. Business volunteers will also be on hand to help visitors optimize their social media profiles, write compelling resumes and practice interviewing skills.
A room full of potential employers from multiple industries can be a bit daunting so it’s important to be prepared when you walk through the doors.
“Taking a skills assessment is an important way to reevaluate your skills and passions; working through it with a professional that is knowledgeable in many fields can also help,” said Kelsey Granowski, Rasmussen College career services advisor.
What’s the best reason to stop into Rasmussen College’s career fair? Talking to employers who do your dream job or work in your preferred industry will give you a better idea of who they’re looking for in the position you’re considering.
Maybe you have what they’re looking for already, or maybe you’ll need to complete some additional schooling, but it’s best to know upfront what you’re getting yourself into as you move toward your dream job.
