HUNDREDS of jobs are up for grabs tomorrow when some of Hampshire’s top employers flock to a premier careers event in Southampton.
Jobseekers attending the Daily Echo Jobs Fair at the Novotel, in association with Priory Education Services, will also get helpful advice from some of the region’s industry experts, who will be sharing their words of wisdom at a series of talks and seminars.
A wide range of sectors will be represented at the Southampton city centre hotel from 10am to 3pm, offering vacancies for those looking to develop their careers or get back on the jobs ladder.
Daily Echo recruitment manager Natalie Sprake said that the fair comes at a time when the economy is beginning to gather pace.
She said: “I think with the recent positive vibe for the city the Daily Echo Jobs Fair is a great opportunity for finding that perfect job.
“There’s a good chance you could find the career that you’re looking for.
“The fair offers opportunities for all ages, whether you are fresh out of school or university, to people who have had to make or want to make a change to their career.
“There’s great advice on hand and some great opportunities from local businesses in Hampshire and beyond.”
Preparing for interviews, polishing up CVs and personal insight on jobs in a variety of sectors is a small flavour of some of the advice available to those looking to advance their career.
Daily Echo editor-in-chief Ian Murray, who will be speaking about the journalism industry at the fair, said: “Tomorrow is a great chance for people to come along and learn more about the job opportunities in the city region. With 26 firms represented at the Novotel, everyone should find something.
“It is great that so many businesses across the region have come forward to help those wanting to find a job here in Hampshire, either for those who are fresh out of school or those who want to go in a new direction.”
