Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national unemployment rate has dropped to 7.8 percent; however, many companies have yet to staff unfilled positions, leaving many Americans without work. Re-Employing America brings together corporate, governmental, and business employers with qualified potential employees, e.g., veterans, military families, women, minorities, unemployed and underemployed. Employers looking for top talent are urged to register on REA’s website and exhibit at this unique career fair on Friday, November 16, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
In this current economic climate, there are more applicants than available positions; employers are looking to fill these openings with the most qualified individuals. Re-Employing America is providing employers a cost-efficient, face-to-face opportunity to meet with qualified candidates. REA is using a global human capital solutions firm to assist in matching up prospective candidates’ skill sets with employers’ needs. Employers will receive candidate resumes in advance of the career fair, and private interviewing areas will be available on-site.
“Williams, Adley & Company is committed to seeking skilled and qualified talent to fill positions within our organization,” said Kola A. Isiaq, Managing Partner, Williams, Adley & Company, LLP. “It’s always a win-win situation when we can interact, face-to-face, with candidates instead of only relying on information presented in an employment application. It makes the process more personal, while creating employment opportunities thus encouraging us to do our part in helping to stimulate the economy.”
Major corporations, federal and local governmental agencies, non profits and other organizations will connect on-site with employment seekers in fields such as administration, marketing, accounting, finance, information technology, human resources, healthcare, engineering, technical logistics, sales, procurement, training, contract/acquisitions, construction and project management and more.
