Career and networking expo helps job seekers stand out

Job seekers got a little extra help standing out Thursday.

Business leaders in the Wausau area offered lots of free advice to those looking for work.

Rasmussen College hosted a career and networking expo. Hopeful candidates networked with business leaders.

A panel of HR experts answered questions about resumes, the application process, and how to stand out from other applicants.

Organizers said this event gave applicants extra insight into what companies look for in an employee. But Sue Williams, campus director at the Rasmussen Wausau Campus, said the job hunt process should be a two-way street.

"It's very important for the candidate to learn about the employer and make sure they're a good fit. Even though they might just want a job. They really need to be looking for a job where they're of value to the organization and the organization is of value to them as well," said Williams.

Tiffany Lee, a marketing major at Rasmussen College, said her classmates are concerned about landing a job. "I don't think the concern is that there aren't any jobs locally. I think the concern is how do I get the experience and how do I meet the right people and I think that's why they come here today."

Rasmussen College hosts career expos twice a year. The next event is scheduled for February. These events are free and open to anyone.
