2010 OpportunityFest Job Fair and Volunteers Wanted

Posted on January 5, 2010




From a Facebook invite from Alice Zhou. This looks like a good opportunity and good practice for interviewing, and if you get there early there are goody bags. And who among jobseekers cannot use a sack full of free stuff? Best of all, it’s in the afternoon, so if you’re on vampire hours, you won’t be half-asleep for the interviews.
