How to prepare for a job fair

To support our area job seekers with being prepared and confident for the upcoming 5th Annual Career Expo, the Vermont Department of Labor’s Brattleboro Career Resource Center is excited to offer a series of free workshops. Please see the attached flyer for detailed information and feel free to distribute this to other area partners who may be interested in this information.

Our local Career Resource Center offers weekly workshops on a variety of job search topics in addition to providing individual assistance to people in our center. Please note, some workshops have a cap for participants as our space is limited. Individuals should contact us in advance to reserve space for one of these events. The brown bag lunch session is open to the public and walk-ins are welcome. Additionally, our center is open Monday – Thursday from 7:45am to 4:30pm, and Fridays from 9:45am to 4:30pm. We are closed for lunch each day from 12:15 to 1pm. Anyone looking for assistance with their job search or who simply need a space to look for work are welcome to come in and use the center. All of our services are free and open to the public.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you at the 5th Annual Career Expo!
