University Of Rochester Holding Employment Training And Career Fair

The University of Rochester will be hosting an event in August to try and help those struggling to find a job in the Rochester area.
The university will be holding Rochester's Employment Training and Career Fair to improve the unemployment rate in the city.

Rochester Mayor Tom Richards and U of R President Joel Seligman made the announcement on Wednesday.

"The idea there is so the process itself isn't what defeats you, that you're not intimidated by that process and defeated by it before you even get a chance, so when you go to a job fair and you go to someplace, you're prepared for what you need to do and your chances are better," said Richards, D.

The event will run August 22 - 23.
Employment Training and Career Fair
The first day, Aug. 22, will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and feature workshops on improving employment skills for the new economy. Topics will cover such subjects as cover letters and resumes, job-search strategies and internships, civil-service job applications and testing, tips and strategies for successful interviews and how to prepare for a career fair.

The second day, Aug. 23, will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and feature a Career Fair with more than a dozen employers, including:
