Good Morning America, GMA, Launches The Great American Job Fair

Good Morning America launched The Great American Job Fair this week in an effort to help more unemployeed Americans find a job and more importantly, good paying jobs.  In their first job fair in Atlanta, they got 80 different companies together who are all hiring people in the Atlanta area.  In addition, they also started the GMA Job Club which brings together a small group of job seekers in your area to offer each other advice, support and camaraderie during the process.  Watch this video regarding the Job Club.

    The success of GMA’s Great American Job Fair is indicative of our times. I am self-employed. My wife works for QVC. Two days ago she came home very sad to report that QVC is laying off more than 900 workers at the West Chester, PA location. This is the first time that I am aware of, in QVC’s history, for a major layoff. My wife will very likely be in the group that will be laid off after Christmas. This means we will lose our health insurance. I don’t know how we can replace her benefits. But I believe in the American dream. I believe that we can get through this. We have to be proactive, polish up our resumes and think outside of the box. Be willing to try something new. If your resume needs work, spend some time polishing it and revising it to match the position you are applying to. There are also resume writing services, advice on the major career boards (CareerBuilder, Monster.com, HotJobs), online resume services such as ResumeBear.com, and other resources on the Internet to help the job seeker. Believe in yourself – believe that employers need you as much as you need them.

    But what happens if the ABC Affiliate Station, WPLG,
    gives one time for the local area GMA Job Fair, then we
    see a different date and time?

    Also ask GMA about South Florida’s (1) lack of willingness
    to hire the unemployed unless they are friends of friends
    in hire offices, (2) using the right to woek law to enforce
    the right not to hire workers as well, (3) right of employers
    to pay less than a living wage, and (4) certain supposed
    state agencies right to fire or let workers go without
    the traditional 30 days notice.
