Have your resume in-hand and be dressed appropriately for an interview.

"Not necessarily a suit and tie, but business casual, and maybe even go to our website and check out the employers and do a little advanced searching so that they are better informed on the employers before they meet them," said Susan Turner, President of Expo Experts.

"It’s sectioned off so it’s meant to be very easy for the job seeker when they come in and we can easily guide them to the appropriate employers in their interest level," said Turner. "It’s been a few years, so we’re really happy to be back in Indianapolis. We were waiting for a little bit of a recovery in the economy before hosting this event in Indianapolis, and we’re delighted to be able to offer this job fair. Now things have really swung around and we’re seeing some great jobs popping up."

The other opportunity for job-seekers is at City-County Council Marilyn Pfisterer's annual job fair.

The event is at Lakeview Church from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be 50 employers and each employer has at least ten openings.

"Just come with a smile, expect to find that job that you’re looking for," said Pfisterer. "If you’re unemployed or if you’re looking for a job change, we can help."

"I can’t guarantee that they are going to have an interview tomorrow, but you always want to make that good impression, you never have a second chance to make a first impression," said Pfisterer. "So bring your resume, if you have a device that you can get internet, the facility is wi-fi capable, so if you want to apply online right there, you can find a spot and set up and do that."

"It’s a great opportunity because the breadth of the jobs is going to be all over the map, it’s FedEx, it’s UPS, it's Eskenazi Hospital, it’s 3 hotels, it’s the city of Indianapolis and the police department, it's Allison Transmission, it’s really a broad-based kind of job fair and it's free."

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development will release new unemployment numbers at 10 a.m. on Tuesday. Communications Director Joe Frank said the Hoosier labor force has grown by 73,000 in the last two years. That's the largest increase in the entire Midwest. Indiana has grown 50,000 private sector jobs in the last year alone.

He also said there are currently 90,000 jobs available at Indiana Career Connect, Indiana's largest source for Hoosier jobs. It's free for job seekers and employers.
