Networking is essential in your job search. If you do it the right way, connections here and there could lead you to dream jobs. LinkedIn says 85% of jobs are filled via some sort of networking.

Job seekers, get your resumes ready.  On Wednesday, you can apply to nearly two dozen companies, all in one place.

The Workforce Connection is holding a hiring event at the Regional Design Center in downtown Rockford.  It goes from 9am until noon.  We spoke with one recruiter.  He says even if a candidate looks impressive on paper, it’s important to make a good first impression.

“When you come up and approach I’m looking to see your ability to communicate,” said Eric Black, an HR Recruiter at Servicom.  “I’m looking to see eye contact.  Will you shake my hand firmly?  Can you pronounce your name where I can hear it?  Those simple things, those are going to show up at a job fair, especially.”

Here’s the list of companies that will attend Wednesday’s job fair:

  • Adecco
  • American Aluminum Extrusion Company, LLC
