TIPS TO HELP YOU GET HIRED!

  • Pre-Register online at www.jobnewstampa.com , print it out and bring it with you to avoid the lines
  • Bring 30 copies of your resume (yes you need to have a resume)
  • Dress for a Job Interview – many of the companies will interview and even hire on the spot so you want to make a good first impression!
  • Pick out 5-10 companies from the list below that you are interested in working for and visit their website to apply online. If you receive a confirmation code or a print out of the application – bring it with you to show the company that you are really interested in employment!
  • Ask the Hiring Manager at each booth for a business card with their contact information on it so you can follow up with them.
  • The most important question to ask is always "When can I start?!"
