The event was held at Northwest Bible Church in Spring, Texas, on Tuesday, October 4, 2016. Jobseekers met with more than 35 different employers from oil and gas, law enforcement, finance and other industries, as well as with representatives from various non-profit and veteran organizations in the area.

“It was a great event and the feedback we received from employers and jobseekers alike was very positive,” explained Mary Silbert, Director of NAM’s Learning Center. “Jobseekers loved the mix of companies that were at the Career Fair and they especially enjoyed the presentation from Bill Proctor on emotional intelligence and job search,” Silbert explained.

Jobseekers like Aron Benton were extremely pleased with this year’s NAM/BJM Fall Career Fair. Benton recently relocated to Houston from Tennessee and he said having a career fair of this size was of great help for anyone looking for a job. “Events like this let the community know that there is someone trying to help you if you just take advantage of it. All you have to do is show up!” Benton said.

This was the third annual NAM/BJM Fall Career Fair and they’ll be back next year with more opportunities for jobseekers in the area.

The Learning Center at NAM provides adult students with the vocational training they need to start a new career. During this fiscal year, the Learning Center provided 61 clients with vocational training scholarships, and assisted 48 clients to obtain jobs. The Learning Center also provided GED and ESL classes to more than 250 students. The NAM/BJM Fall 2015 Career Fair was attended by 700 job seekers with 40 employers and non-profit exhibitors participating in the Fair.
