"If a candidate doesn't take the time today to prepare for an event such as this - and they don't make a great first impression, then they will not get a second chance. The environment is just too competitive. Finding a job opening is part of the battle, but getting invited back for a second and third interview is where real preparation comes into play," says Mr. Bowman.

Job seekers looking to create a great resume can do so using the ResumeMaker technology on the LocalJobs website free of charge.
