Each year, these fairs attract hundreds of businesses and thousands of job seekers, according to the Department of Labor. Certified professional résumé writers from the DOL will be at each of the fairs to review résumés, and offer employment tips.

Job seekers are advised to bring plenty of résumés, and schedule enough time to meet with various company representatives. There is no cost to attend the fairs, and parking is free.
