Looking for a job? We know where some are.

The Southeast Missourian and will be hosting their second annual Career Fair, an event that matches job-seekers with employers looking for people willing to work.

The event will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Show Me Center on the Southeast Missouri State University campus. Parking and admission are free.

In addition to meeting representatives from private companies, not-for-profit groups and the military, those who attend can practice their interviewing and networking skills.

A Career Fair tab will be included in the newspaper Sunday and will be available at the fair as well. Articles in the tab are include tips for writing great cover letters, how to research prospective employers, how to interview well and factors to consider in evaluating a job offer.

Last year more than 375 job seekers from throughout the area met with business representatives, filled out job applications and gathered employment information.

More than that are expected this year.
