job fair

Job Fair – At American Forklift Training Centers, INC, we strive to be more than just your typical forklift school. We are committed to helping students and the community not only learn how to safely and properly operate a forklift and earn their forklift certification, but we want to help you find your next job. Therefore, upon earning your forklift certification, not only do we send your information out to hundreds of hiring companies and agencies in your area, but we host job fairs dedicated to forklift positions to get you in front of hiring managers and recruiters.

Whether you’re looking to start a new career as a forklift operator, searching for a job closer to home, or seeking a higher paying position, American Forklift Training Centers, INC. is dedicated to bringing you the opportunities you need.

Accordingly, we are hosting a job fair on Wednesday, September 22nd for Fairway Staffing from 10am to 1pm and we invite you to attend.

*Side note: If you have come across this blog after September 22nd, please contact our office for more info on upcoming job fairs.

Advantages of Attending a Job Fair:

  1. Present Yourself to Potential Employers & On-site Interviews) Submitting job applications online or hand delivering them to companies can take quite a bit of time. Attending a job fair, however, allows you to reach recruiters and hiring managers directly, saving you lots of time and energy. In most cases, candidates can formally introduce themselves to those hiring, submit a resume, and potentially even schedule an interview – all the while creating a great first impression.
  2. Networking) In addition for the chance of landing an on the spot interview, at a job fair you have a chance to network with recruiters and hiring managers. Subsequently, not only can you land a job immediately, but if you make a lasting impression, you may get called upon for future openings as well.
  3. Career Exploration) As mentioned in our previous blogs, forklift operations opens the door to many opportunities, including lucrative leadership roles. At a career fair, you have the opportunity to speak with recruiters and hiring managers to discuss the various occupations and career paths available. 

To take advantage of these job fair opportunities and more, join us on September 22!
