   Job candidates trekked to the Prime Osborn Convention Center to participate in Mayor Alvin Brown and Congresswoman Corrine Brown’s 2014 Citywide Job and Resource Fair.  Over 150 employers participated in the job fair. The Job Readiness Workshop “Making a Good Impression” was scheduled as early as 7:45 a.m. and filled to capacity. Other workshops included, “Finding Resources/Answering Difficult Questions,” “Dressing for Success,” “Using Social Media,” “From Resume, Interview to Job Offers,” “Background/Getting Bonded,” “Job Expectations, “Understanding Paper Checks, Direct Deposit or Pay Cards,” and more Local Community Relations and Employment Specialists provided advice on career goals and community resources.  Councilman Reggie Brown spoke to the crowd, and thanked the job seekers for coming, “We appreciate you coming out to the Job Fair and the City of Jacksonville is committed to ensure that you have the resources to find a job, speak to experts and attend workshops. We want you to be successful.”
