Anyone looking to get hired during the holidays could get their chance at HireLive’s sales and management career fair on Dec. 11 at the Hilton in Pasadena.
HireLive will be working with multiple Fortune 500 Companies, industry leaders and local businesses. Job opportunities at the event include sales representatives, retail managers, customer service, human resources and account executives, among others.
Marketing coordinator Lauren Baker said the people who show up to the event will get a chance to do interviews on the spot. Professional dress is required.
“Basically it is a sales, retail, and management-specific career fair so it’s a great opportunity for people who are either currently unemployed or just looking for new career opportunities,” Baker said. “Because it is the end of the year, a lot of companies are hiring for 2015.”
Candidates looking for employment are expected to bring at least 10 copies of their resume and to research companies before attending the event. Pre-registration is not required.
Some of the companies that will be present at the Pasadena fair include MassMutual, New York Life and American Solar Direct. The full list of companies will be updated on Dec. 5 on HireLive’s website.
HireLive hosts career fairs across the country. Other Southern California locations include San Fernando Valley, Orange County and San Diego.
“We definitely welcome people who know anybody else who might be looking for employment to bring them along,” Baker said.
The Pasadena career fair will be on Dec. 11 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Hilton Pasadena, located on 168 South Robles Ave., Pasadena. Parking is free on the street or $11 for valet. For more information, visit www.HireLive.com.
