Q) My internet was down in my area the county is putting new water lines in and cut the internet connection. I miss the 10:00am work/ job fair.
A) I’m sorry to hear that you missed the job fair due to the internet being down in your area. It can be frustrating to miss out on important opportunities like this. Here are some suggestions for what you can do now:
- Check if the job fair has been rescheduled – If the job fair was a one-time event, see if the organizers have plans to reschedule it. If it was a recurring event, you can attend the next one.
- Follow up with the companies that were at the job fair – If you were interested in any of the companies that were present at the job fair, reach out to them directly. You can find their contact information on their website or LinkedIn page. Let them know that you were unable to attend the fair, but are still interested in learning more about their open positions.
- Look for other job fairs or virtual events – There may be other job fairs or virtual events happening in your area that you can attend. Check with your local chamber of commerce or job center for upcoming events.
- Apply directly to companies – Even if you missed the job fair, you can still apply to the companies that you’re interested in. Check their website or LinkedIn page for open positions and submit your application.
Depending on the event, there may be future job fairs or other employment opportunities available. I would recommend checking the websites or social media pages of the organizers or sponsors of the event to see if there are any upcoming fairs or other events scheduled. Additionally, you can also check with local employment services, such as those listed in the search results, to see if they have any job openings or hiring events coming up. Remember, missing one opportunity does not mean that all hope is lost. Keep your head up, stay motivated, and continue to pursue your job search.
