SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) – JobFairGiant.com is looking for 250 good men and women.

More than 300 candidates who attended Friday’s career fair in Southfield, are set to move forward in the hiring process on Monday — but recruiters still need to interview the additional candidates before the New Year.

Top Job Search Tips from JobFairGiant.com:

Be Prepared. Have a telephone answering machine or voice mail system in place and sign-up for a professional sounding email address. Put your cell phone number on your resume so you can follow up in a timely manner.

Create Your Own Templates. Have copies of your resume and cover letter ready to edit. That way you can change the content to match the requirements of the job you’re applying for, but, the contact information and your opening and closing paragraphs won’t need to be changed.

Go directly to the source. Instead of just applying for the posted job opening, one of the best strategies to finding a job is to first figure out where you want to work, target that company or industry and then contact the hiring manager.

Also, many employers’ career pages invite visitors to fill out candidate profiles, describing their background, jobs of interest, salary requirements and other preferences.
