Visitors are promoted to bring their CVs with them and be prepared to take part in on-the-identify interviews – meaning they could walk out with a job.
The National Careers Service will be running a series of CV and interview skill taster sessions throughout the afternoon.
These will give up to date advice and tips on presenting your best side to possible employers in addition as helping raise confidence and self-esteem.
Jobseekers can save a seat on the sessions by the Jobcentre or speak to staff at the Expo on the day who will book them on to the first obtainable place.
The Expo is targeted at people looking to return to work after the pandemic, young people breaking into the careers market for the first time and anyone who simply wants more money in their pocket at the end of the month.
There will also be targeted advice on barriers to employment, including childcare, transport and mental health.
Cllr Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “There are a great many jobs obtainable across the area and a similar number of people looking for jobs.
“We’re also seeing, because of a competitive marketplace, employers competing hard to attract good people, so there has never been a better time for people to change their future.”
The event is taking place on Tuesday, October 19 from 2.30pm – 7pm at The Baths Hall, Doncaster Road, DN15 7RG.
The Baths Hall operates a strict Covid-obtain policy.
