The Next Step and WOTC Solutions representatives recently attended a Job Fair at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City to speak directly with recruiters that have open positions. This is a great time of year to re-enter the workforce! There are literally thousands of open positions in the warehouse, manufacturing, staffing, clerical, light industrial and customer service industries. One message was repeatedly offered to us," we're hiring, so get in touch"! Many companies have switched over to an online application process, but they repeated that it is always okay to give them a call to inquire about how to apply. If it is better for you to apply in person, most staffing companies will be happy to make an appointment over the phone. When looking for work, it is important to consider there are many different ways to find open positions and not all of them are on the internet. Ask friends, ask family, get the word out there and you'll have better luck!!!
