Jobs Boot Camp Attracts Hundreds of Job Seekers
T.C. Williams High School cafeteria turned into a powerhouse of professional networking Tuesday morning.
Hundreds of job seekers flocked to the Job Hunters Boot Camp hosted by U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (D-8th) on Tuesday morning.
The T.C. Williams High School cafeteria was awash in dark suits and discussion. Even if attendees didn't leave with a job right away, they left with any number of keychains, flashlights, cloth bags, pens and more.
Job seekers spoke with staff from a range of companies and organizations including the Arlington Employment Center, Boeing, CACI, Hero2Hired, Inova Health System, JobLink and Virginia Commerce Bank.
The seminar, open only to 8th district residents, also featured workshops covering subjects such as social media and networking and rules of the road for recent graduates.
