Another Job Fair at Roanoke Civic Center Dec. 29

This shot is from one of Roanoke's recent job fairs. There have been several and they're popular in this economy^

As a result of the continued economic environment and large turnout at previous Roanoke Career and Lifestyle Fairs, the City of Roanoke will be hosting another job fair on Tuesday, December 29, 2009 from 9 a.m. until noon at the Roanoke Civic Center Special Events Center.

Exhibitors will include companies offering jobs, entrepreneurial organizations showcasing resources to assist with business startups, and lifestyle organizations offering a diverse mix of social and cultural amenities.

"Recent job fairs have been very successful and we continue our responsibility to provide opportunities for job seekers to interact with employers,” says fair coordinator, Lisa Soltis. “We hope to reach those living in the region, as well as individuals returning home for the holidays, and December graduates entering the job market with the Holiday Career & Lifestyle Fair.

"This event offers the opportunity for job seekers to meet face-to-face with employers to learn what opportunities are available for them and the best way to proceed with the application process.”

Admission to the fair for attendees and exhibitors is free. For more information on being an exhibitor, contact Lisa Soltis at 540-853-1694, e-mail lisa.soltis@roanokeva.gov, Web site www.roanokeva.gov/fairs.
