RICHLAND, Wash. – Registration is open for businesses wanting to recruit qualified candidates Nov. 8 during Career Fair at Washington State University Tri-Cities.
About 1,000 job-seekers are expected as WSU Tri-Cities partners with WorkSource Columbia Basin to welcome laid-off Hanford workers to the event. About 60 employer booths are available for $35 each and may be reserved at the website.  
The fair will be 11 a.m.-4 p.m. – with early entrance at 10 a.m. for WSU Tri-Cities students who show WSU ID – in the Consolidated Information Center at 2770 Crimson Way, Richland.
Businesses, public organizations and not-for-profit agencies are invited to meet prospective employees or promote internships and volunteer opportunities. This is the only WSU Tri-Cities career fair planned for the 2011-2012 academic year.
In addition to the public, employers will have access to students who are earning degrees in business, computer science, education, engineering, liberal arts (including digital technology and culture, English, history, psychology and sociology), nursing, sciences and viticulture and enology. There will be a “fast pass” entrance line for students with WSU ID.
Three 45-minute workshops for job-seekers will be held during the fair, including resume development, interviewing skills and how to start a business. A “resume doctor” booth will provide quick and honest feedback about a resume’s format and text.
