Looking for a job? Mark April 13 on your calendar.

Moraine Park Technical College Job Fair

“You’re hired.” “You got the job.” “We’d like you to come work for us.”

If those are phrases you’ve been waiting to hear, we’re here to help!

On Wednesday, April 13, from 10-2 p.m., Moraine Park Technical College, along with UW Fond du Lac, Marian University, FDL Area Association of Commerce and the FDL Job & Career Center will co-host this year’s Fond du Lac Job Fair. This free event is open to the public and will be held in the UW Fond du Lac Phy Ed Building, 400 University Drive. Sponsored by Michels Corporation and Agnesian HealthCare, this is a great opportunity for those getting ready to graduate, currently seeking employment or just looking for a change to attend.

Doors will open 30 minutes prior to allow veterans an early opportunity to speak with local employers.

Don’t feel you’re ready to start applying? Don’t worry! There’s help for that, too.

Prior to the job fair, there will be resume assistance and a career clothes closet, also located in the UW Fond du Lac Phy Ed building. The career clothes closet gives individuals a chance to pick out one outfit or suit, including a shirt and tie and is open to students only with valid ID on April 5th from 9-4:30 p.m., and then to the general public and students, April 6th from 9-4:30 p.m. and April 7th from 12-7:00 p.m. Need help with your resume, does it require some polishing up? Human resources professionals from the Fond du Lac area will be available to assist on April 7th from 5-7 p.m.

With over 50 employers registered to attend this community event, it’s a perfect opportunity for job seekers to network. Employers from health care to manufacturing to sales will be on site with many of them looking to hire and may conduct interviews on the spot. Those interested in finding employment should come dressed appropriately with multiple copies of their resumes.

Remember, first impressions go a long way!
