Connect with future employers with the Brainerd Community Job Fair

Straighten up that tie and dust off those dress slacks. It's time to impress your potential future employer at the Brainerd Community Job Fair. It runs from 2-5 p.m. Wednesday, April 8 at CLC's Brainerd campus.
This is the place to go if you're looking for full-time work, a part-time gig, or even just summer work.
"It's a great opportunity for those looking for employment to see what's available," said Deb Norlin, Director of Placement/Academic Advisor at CLC.
Last year, about 125 people explored their career options during the long-standing job fair.
Plus, the face-to-face setting offers something that internet job searches can't.
"You're making that personal one-on-one connection with people in the hiring position," Norlin said. "It makes a big difference."
Come dressed to impress, Norlin recommends. Resumes could help, but more and more, employers are moving to an online application system, she said.

The job fair is open to students and community members.
