Uncommon Tips for Fantastic Job Fair Success

Relax... It can be easy to psych yourself out before a job fair. You’ll be much better off if you take a few minutes to collect yourself, get the lay of the land, and stay calm.

Get in a Rhythm... Start with companies low on your priority list. This will give you a chance to practice your pitch, Q&A, and thought process. Once you’ve got a good interview rhythm, then it’s time to hit the big leagues.

Lyft shares how much you can make!

I think the biggest question everyone who is interested in driving for Lyft asks is...How much can I make?

My last Lyft driver shared that he makes about $300 a day before things like taxes, fees, and insurance. He drives first thing in the morning, which is when he tends to get the most riders (even as early as 3am). Later on he gets some lunch in the afternoon and then takes a break only to drive again in the evening. He told me he...

Your resume has gaps!

If your resume has gaps this could be for a couple of reasons. Perhaps you were ill and needed to step away from working for a bit, or you simply could have been caring for a loved one or raising your child. Whatever the reason, your resume shows what you've done and having long gaps in your work history can give employers the wrong impression.

Here are some things you can do to minimize those gaps!

Speak up and sloooooow down

Headed to a job fair? Keep these things in mind!

As you approach the employer’s table make sure you are friendly, confident, and most importantly prepared with something to say. Be different and stand out! Don’t fall back on chatting about the weather because 100 other people will likely be doing the same exact thing. Research the companies you are going to chat with beforehand and lead with something to catch their...

Age Discrimination w/job search

Hello aged people
This is an EMPLOYER MARKET! They can be picky and hold out because there isnt a rush. Example employer: why is this person looking for work? Why did she/he leave her job? What is it that keeps him/her asking for this job type based on employment? Is he/she caught up in their own way, where we are not able to train? Health concerns; will this employee miss a lot of work due to age? An employer cannot ask these questions and...
