More than 30 employers in such fields as health care, industry, communications, landscaping and education will be at the Holiday Inn, 101 W. Springbrook Drive, for the 2018 Career Expo for in-person contact with potential applicants.
The expo will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. Admission is free for job seekers.
“We expect over 400 job seekers because of the high quality of the participating employers,” Expo organizer Richard Clark said. “Job seekers should dress to impress the recruiters, bring plenty of resumes and do a bit of research on their favorite companies prior to coming in.
“In years’ past, the candidates that have the most success are the ones who have an idea of the kind of work they are looking for.”
In addition to positions with major manufacturers, call centers and staffing agencies, this year’s Career Expo has a wide range of medical employers, making it a good option for health care workers looking to give their careers a boost or a restart.
Given the large number of participating employers, Clark said job seekers can get in a month’s worth of job hunting in just a few hours.
“Unlike virtual job fairs, this is a real career expo with employers ready to meet with candidates face-to-face,” he said.
The 2018 Career Expo is sponsored by Northeast Tennessee Media Group, which includes the Johnson City Press, Kingsport Times News and TriCityJobs.com.
A special section in Sunday’s Johnson City Press will feature ads from the participating employers. Job seekers also can find more information at www.bestjobfair.net.
