Job seekers are encouraged to visit HED’s Community Job Board before the event. This interactive tool is an easy-to-navigate website for job seekers. Features include filtering by job type, skill level, location, full-time/part-time, and more. Researching beforehand gives event participants an opportunity to prepare before speaking with a company.
Employers post on the Community Job Board frequently, organize jobs by classification, add job descriptions, applications, and contact information. After an employer adds a listing, it automatically posts to HED’s Facebook page.
