Employers will interact with job seekers on Friday at the PathLynks One Fourteen Job Fair.

PathLynks LLC has partnered with local chambers of commerce to host the first One Fourteen Job Fair.

Organizers said the job fair is specific to the demand for employees in the cities of Southlake, Westlake, Trophy Club and other western cities, and will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, at the Marq Southlake's Legends Hall, 285 Shady Oaks Drive, Southlake.

The job fair features more than 2,500 job openings from employers, including Fidelity Investments, Amazon, Market Street, Carroll ISD and many others.

Workshops will be provided to offer tips for using Linked In, as well as tips for interviews and resumes. A professional photographer will also be at the event to take professional headshots of job seekers to add to their social profiles.

Job seekers can register online here.

For those looking to come away from the event with strong leads for jobs, here are some things to know:

1. Research the companies


Event organizer Fanny Dunagan suggested that job seekers find the One Fourteen Job Fair's website and social media, and to research which employers are coming to the event and what positions they are hiring for as well as learning more about the company in general. Job seekers should modify their resume and pitches based on the research they do.

2. Update resumes


Dunagan also said job seekers need to have their resumes updated before attending the job fair. She said potential employers could collect resumes in person at the job fair, or will have the job seeker apply online. Either way, it is best to be prepared, she said.

3. Plan to attend the whole day


Dunagan said staying the whole day will give job seekers the benefit of not only meeting all potential employers but also the opportunity to attend the different workshops that will be available.

4. Dress for success


Finally, Dunagan said the types of positions available at the job fair will vary, but the best way to make a good impression, regardless of the position one is applying for, is to dress professionally.
