More than 4,000 current job openings will be showcased to jobseekers at the third annual Florida Blue, Florida Classic Career Expo & Diversity Job Fair in Orlando on November 16 at the Amway Center (11am-3pm), put on by OrlandoJobs.com. These job openings represent more than 75 employers in a variety of industries, and include many professional, high-paying and diverse positions. In addition, the Career Expo will include five powerful seminars by career experts on topics including power interviewing, the 2013 resume must haves, LinkedIn tips to find jobs others can’t, discovering your career path and job search strategies for senior professionals and executives. The job fair and all seminars are free for jobseekers.
“Florida companies are hiring, and this job fair is specifically designed for people who want to find real jobs with real salaries from over 75 well known Florida companies,” states Roger Lear, President and CEO of OrlandoJobs.com.
Jobseekers can sign up for free at OrlandoJobs.com/jobfair. The full list of those 4,000 current open positions includes jobs in education, healthcare, IT, hospitality, engineering, sales and construction, as well as bilingual positions. Bright House, Chase Card Services and Kangaroo Express are the top sponsors. Many employers such as Orlando Health, Florida Blue, Home Depot, Orlando County Public Schools, Convergys, City of Orlando, Embry Riddle Aeronautical, Orlando VA Hospital, Universal Orlando, Verizon Wireless, McDonalds, and 60 other companies are attending. Companies can register for the event at orlandojobs.com/diversity.
“The job fair is a classic way for businesses and jobseekers to meet, but with the unemployment at 8.7% in Florida, jobseekers have been frustrated applying online and never getting any response. The Florida Blue, Florida Classic Career Expo & Diversity Job Fair is the one single event that showcases some of the state’s finest companies in the pursuit of great diversified candidates.”
Planned around the weekend of the Florida Classic football match-up between Bethune-Cookman University and Florida A&M University, organizers of the November 16th event are also donating sixty percent of the proceeds from booth revenue to a scholarship fund that is split between the two schools.
