Monday could be a big opportunity for those in search of work. A free job fair is being held at the DoubleTree on Westshore.
If you're looking for work, this is one of those opportunities to meet face to face with those looking to hire.
The Labor Department just released the August jobs report, and the numbers aren't good. Here is the good news: The department says the economy added 96,000 jobs last month.
But that number is far less than the 125,000 expected. Still, the unemployment rate dropped from 8.3 percent to 8.1 percent, but some say that's deceiving because so many people dropped out stopped looking for work.
Dozens of employers are expected to show up to the job fair Monday in Tampa, such as the U.S. Navy, U.S. Remodelers, Aaron's, DriveTime and many others.
Some tips: Dress professionally and bring several copies of your resume. It's also suggested you register online.
The fair is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Doubletree at 4500 West Cypress Street.
