WASHINGTON, November 6, 2013 – Looking for work? A lot of people still are, even in a supposedly recession-proof town like the nation’s capital. A job hunt can be a lengthy, discouraging slog. But periodic job fairs, which gather together, under one roof, a large number of employers with slots to fill, are often the most efficient way to meet representatives and hiring managers of companies that might just be looking for you.
Arena Stage and War 6 council member Tommy Wells are sponsoring one such promising job fair in SW DC at Arena’s Mead Center for American Theater tomorrow, Thursday, November 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s this fall’s successor to last February’s “Looking for Good People” job fair, which, according to an Arena release “was attended by over 2,000 community members and featured partnerships with 18 participating organizations.”
According to the release, participating companies that will have representatives onsite include Bank of America, City Year, Comcast, Community Services Foundation, DC Department of Human Resources (DCHR), DC Water, Dress for Success, Forest City, Giant, Safeway, Specialty Hospital of Washington, Strive DC, UnitedHealthcare, United Planning Organization (UPO), Unity Health Care, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA).
The event will kick off at 10 a.m. sharp with opening remarks by councilman Wells and Arena Stage executive producer Edgar Dobie. For more details on the event, visit arenastage.org/jobfair.
Getting there: Getting to the fair is easy. Arena’s Mead Center is located at1101 Sixth St., SW, Washington, DC 20024, just a couple of blocks from the Green Line’s Waterfront Station. For details, visit www.arenastage.org.
