R2W’s class, offered from 8am-10am on March 23rd or 24th, pair job seekers with mentors who help them communicate their career skills. Participants then interview with companies that are actively hiring. Those who attend the first two days of the Expo are given interview preference on March 25th.

“For many of today’s jobs, it’s not enough to have the right education, years of experience and skills,” notes R2W President and Co-Chairman Rob Brazell. “An applicant’s personality score can make or break a job offer. We’ll teach participants how to use online tools to rapidly evaluate themselves and improve their scores so their resumes rise to the top and they land both the interview and the job offer.”
