There’s no cotton candy or prizes at this fair, but there are some sweet opportune rides to jump on.
If you missed out last week, Monday is the last day to submit your online application to Verizon Wireless, which is seeking a few sales representatives for its retail stores. Not to mention, Liberty Mutual will be hosting its open house hiring event at the end of this month. Not into fairs? How about a totally feel-good job? Academic Advantage has received funding from the No Child Left Behind program and is now seeking outreach representatives to sign up qualified low income families for free in-home tutoring and upon completion of course, the student will receive a free laptop!
Good luck job seekers!
