Career Fair

I head out to Career Fairs periodically since I need a full time job to help make ends meet. This one was at Four Points by Sheraton (5905 International Drive, Orlando, FL.) The invite stressed that it was FREE to Job Seekers.

It was billed as a great opportunity to meet local, regional, and Fortune 500 Companies with immediate job openings in your area. Their events are open to executive level experienced professionals as well as entry level and recent college graduates. This was your chance to meet directly with hiring managers! Participants were encouraged to register so that companies can review your resume prior to attending the career fair.

Many career opportunities included the following:
    Base salary plus commission
    Flexible schedule
    Opportunity for advancement
    Car/Gas allowance
    Health care
    Stock Options
    Retirement Plans
    Sales Awards/Bonuses/Trips

Participants were encouraged to bring updated crisp resumes to the fair, prepare to interview on the spot, dress to impress, professional attire was required.

As I entered, an older gentleman was exiting and told me to not even bother going in. He said that only commission jobs were available. Since my primary concern was to get a decent sketch, I went in anyway. The day did not result in any amazing career opportunities, but you never know.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
