Recap from last Wednesday's Older Worker and Fall Job Fair at Raymond James Stadium

I got a first hand overview from the Job Fair last Wednesday at Raymond James Stadium by Derek Witman, the GSM over at the Tampa Employment Guide. So without further babbling here goes:

The Tampa Job Fair was a huge success, and there was a ton of excitement in the air. The event was held at Raymond James Stadium and it was a fantastic venue for the 1200 job seeking candidates who attended. Each job seeker had the chance to win a $25,000 car that was sponsored by Bill Heard Chevrolet, along with 2 job seekers who won round trip tickets to fly anywhere in the Continental US, compliments of Southwest Airlines. I think the Resolve Staffing recruiters said it best “This is an excellent venue, and it shows that you went above and beyond to make this a great event” The AARP offices in this area did a tremendous job of spreading the word, and our focus on the Mature Working Community was also a success. Finally, I want to congratulate and thank our Tampa team for going above and beyond to make it a great event. Thanks Telzey, Natalie, Shannon, Jeff, Steve, Sheri, and Jackie, you guys were awesome.

Thanks Derek. I am truly disappointed that I missed such a great event, but it looks like things went incredibly well for job seekers, employers and the crew over at the Tampa Employment Guide offices. If you want further proof, check out the slide show from the job fair below!
