August 15, 2012ROSWELL, Ga. – Roswell United Methodist Church's job-networking program is getting ready for its next mini-job fair Monday, Aug. 27.
It will feature employers from the Greater Atlanta area. Those in job transition can expect to meet interviewers in person from:
** Office Depot, bringing 52 job openings from all over Greater Atlanta
** Northwest Exterminating (hiring sales, service and office administration)
** Human Resource Dimensions
** Farmers Insurance (agents)
** PrideStaff (hiring admin and more)
** Appen Newspapers
Employers who wish to participate may contact Katherine Simons at firstname.lastname@example.org and see the growing list on www.rumcjobnetworking.com.
Julie Mizer, Babs Skilling, Lynn Schryer and Cookie Whiteside are making sure the Attire to Hire Closet is full of women's and men's professional suits ready to be given to job seekers who are preparing for employer interviews. Suits are given away at no cost, complete with shirts, shoes and accessories. Job seekers get more than free clothing – volunteers in Attire to Hire are HR professionals, recruiters and fashion consultants, all experienced in counseling people about how to make that first impression the best it can be.
The closet was the idea of Donna Litton, who dreamed about helping candidates for jobs feel confident about their appearance when they met with an employer.
