Next week's Job Quest job fair will include sessions where employers will brief job seekers about which industries need workers and what applicants need to obtain the necessary skills for those positions.
More than 150 employers will be recruiting at the event set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Neal Blaisdell Center.
Job fair organizers also will be offering free, professional LinkedIn headshots on a first-come, first-served basis.
"In today's employment world your social media profile is as important as your resume," said Beth Busch, executive director of Job Quest.
Job seekers are advised to bring copies of their résumés, dress professionally and research companies in which they may be interested.
The event is sponsored by Altres Staffing, Bank of Hawaii, Hawaii Pacific Health and Oahu Worklinks. Admission is $3; students, military and seniors with ID will be admitted for $1. Visit www.successhi.com.
