    Name: Business Exchange & Job Fair 2017
    Date: March 29, 2017
    Time: 12:30 PM - 4:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    “Business Exchange & Job Fair” Connects Buyers & Sellers -- Employers & Employees
    This trade-show style event will showcase up to 100 businesses & organizations from around the area.
    In today's highly competitive job market, employers are encouraged to highlight career opportunities, hand out job descriptions and applications and even conduct interviews "on the spot" in a dedicated interview room.  Job seekers should come in their "best dress" and bring resume copies and be prepared for a quick interview with potential employers. Since this is also a trade-show, job seekers will be able to research potential new career opportunities in "stealth mode." High school students from Fergus Falls and Underwood High Schools will attend and learn more about careers in our region.

    In a world of social media marketing and online connections, sometimes there’s nothing more refreshing than doing business the old-fashioned way – with a handshake and a smile.
