Berry explains. "Lots of companies are struggling to find employees right low.

They have put together a free 80-plus-company job fair, going on today at Gallery Furniture on I-45 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Berry says, "There is a need for people from high school diplomas/GEDs, all the way up to PhDs and everything in between. There is a broad range of needs. The economy wants to get back up - there's a demand for it."
- Berry's Job Fair Tips:
Ask questions. "Even if they don't hire you --- ask them if they know of a competitor that could be needing you. Networking is a huge part of job search. It really can be about who you know. And who you know my be someone you meet at a job fair!"
- Make it easy to be hired. "Come with your resume or some sort of a card with your name, email address and phone number on it. And write something on it that will remind them of you like: "I am the red head,' or 'I'm the one who was 6 feet tall.' Make it easy for them to remember you after the job fair is over.
Says Berry, "Let's get past this pandemic and get back to a roaring economy." They are planning for 300 to 400 applicants today. "We have a broad range of companies dealing in medical, technology, finance, construction, hospitality, EVERYBODY is hiring now. Whether it's a bar-back in a restaurant or hotel bar, a construction worker, a nurse, an engineer - people are desperate to hire now."
