Job Seekers Speak Up at 25th Annual C.B.C. Career Expo
PASCO, Wash. -- Normally a resume is just a cover letter and list of your qualifications, but it was much more than that at the 25th Annual Columbia Basin College Career Expo on Thursday.
Job seekers had a chance to present a one minute "live resume" to more than 70 different potential employers. Most talked about their job history and one woman went as far as to say she is the future governor of Washington. The job seekers seemed to think it was a good way for recruiters to get to know them.
"More than anything, I want to get my personality across", said James Davis. "I believe that's what sells business nowadays and what keeps business".
Others enjoyed how effecient the process was.
"I've been to several of these kind of things before and instead of going one-by-one and having to do the same thing over and over again... to be able to do it all in one and have them come to you afterwards is a nice break", said Dacia Michal R. (the future governor).
Organizers expected more than 800 people to attend the expo.
