Announcements

Chicago West Career Fair on May 24th. This is a great opportunity for job seekers to meet face to face with multiple decision makers hiring professionals across many industries. Our career fairs are open to entry level and recent college graduates as well as executive level and experienced professionals.

Our career fairs focus specifically on Sales, Business Development, Sales Marketing, Customer Service, and Retail & Sales Management jobs, and offer individual, face-to-face time with hiring managers from a variety of different companies.

Here’s how it works: we will welcome you with a formal executive presentation in which each company will introduce itself and the opportunities they offer. You will then be free to meet with hiring managers from each company that has attracted your interest. At the same time, you will be able to network not only with various employers, but also with other professionals.

Tips For Success:

1. For additional details and to pre-register go to: www.catalystcareergroup.com

Register and submit your resume. Companies view the resumes before the event and may invite you to come and meet them. We recommend that you pre-register, but it is not required.

2. Dress professionally. Business attire. First impressions go a long way.

3. Plan to spend a minimum of 1 hour at the event.

4. Bring multiple copies of your resume. And bring a friend - all jobseekers are welcome.

5. Prepare your 30-60 second "Value Statement." Offer everyone you meet a clear snapshot of who you are and what you have to offer a company as an employee. What were your past positions? How did you benefit your previous employers? What would you like to do in the future? Remember, the best way to be considered for a position is to meet the hiring managers in person. Come prepared to stand out from the crowd.

6. Keep an open mind. Meet with as many of the companies as you can. We have had many jobseekers discover companies and positions that they had not known about or considered before they came. Don't miss out - you may be surprised at what you find.
