DETROIT (WWJ) - The Detroit Branch NAACP will match opportunity with potential when it hosts the 8th Annual Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! – A Super Career Expo.

The career fair will be held on Friday, April 26 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Fellowship Chapel Dome located at 7707 W. Outer Drive in Detroit.

The career expo is free and open to the public and will feature several workshops that will focus on interviewing and resume writing skills, workers rights, social media and the workforce, career paths to entrepreneurship, and a strolling fashion show on dressing for success.

A computer resource center will be on-site for individuals to apply for jobs online. On the spot interviews are likely, so all attendees are encouraged to dress appropriately in professional attire.

“Economic empowerment is one of the core initiatives for the NAACP,” Wendell Anthony, President of Detroit Branch NAACP, said in a statement. “Our annual job fair helps us to serve as a conduit to quality jobs, resources and training opportunities.”

Some companies looking to hire include Beaumont Hospital, U.S. Steel and Ypsilanti Public Schools.
