    An employer showcase is an event where we screen all applicants for the employer. We, then, setup face to face interviews at the event for six to sometimes fifteen minutes. This has proven to be a very effective way to get participants jobs.

  7. Gary McCully

    Sounds good.

  26. ioniajones

    Ionia Jones, here. I am, also, looking forward to the Job fair on the 13th. I like Susan W.’s comments on the video. I think that the middle class has been beaten up a lot, lately. Many of those world class aspirations can, also, be found in the middle class. Have a good week, everyone! Remember, Job Fair on the 13th, BE THERE!

  33. angeladevinney

    Thanks again for all of the information for the job fair. I am looking forward to it. This is the first one I’ve been invited to attend. I see that the Psychiatric Nursing Assistant position does not require a degree, that they will “train you.” Ms. Rudd could you email me more about it if you know anything else about it prior to the showcase? When I went to the website and applied for the Assistant Director of Treatment position the other day, I still did not see the Psychiatric Nursing Assistant position posted. Do you want us to e-mail our updated resume/curriculum vitae directly to you? Thanks.


  34. cynthiafrye

  44. kn1964

    Great video and I read positive comments about the book:

    Here is a summary:
    Champions are driven by emotional motivators
    The great ones chose discipline over pleasure
    Middle class vs. world class
    The great ones believe they cannot fail…they can only learn and grow
    The great ones take responsibility
    Champions have an immense capacity for world class concentration
    Common sense is the foundation of high performance
    The great ones make the complicated simple
    Champions are driven by a world class belief system

    I will read the book. Have a good day!

  45. Christine Sawyer

    The link was very thought provoking. Thank you! It helped organized my mindset about everything that is happening to me right now!

  46. davidw50

    It would be helpful to the “job seekers” if a job description and or requirements, education level,and experience level etc were provided to the applicants before the job fair. This would help the applicants to focus on their experience level and background before the interviews.

  47. Melvin

    in the past we would list all employers attending the job events we schedule, however, job seekers would take that list and go to the employer ahead of time to apply for positions. This upset the employers as they have very strict schedules for seeing applicants. Also, it was not fair for those who were getting up early dressing and getting to the event prepared and on time.

    An agreement was made with the employers to keep their names out of announcements. As for as job descriptions, we do try to post as much of the information as possible. That is if we get it in time. We will try to do better.

    Our primary tool is Work-In-Texas and if the employer has posted that information with us, we will promptly post it. In addition, if you have a question about a particular position, send us your question about that position.

    We are now calling companies about what positions are available, benefits and more. The answers to these inquiries are being posted in the Employee Spotlight Section of the magazine.

  48. jannpage

    YAHOO!!! I finally have an interview with a medical office DOING WHAT I DO BEST, front desk/insurance verification/customer service. The down side is that it is part time but I will take it if offered to me. That could always turn into full time (with patience) (jann page)

  49. brandyrodriguez

    Nice message!! Thanks for the info!!

    Brandy Rodriguez

  50. Melvin
