Opportunities Abound: CIRI Job and Resource Fair

With more than 135 attendees and 26 vendors, CIRI’s fourth annual Job and Resource Fair was held on January 29 at the Fireweed Business Center. Participants had the opportunity to connect with CIRI, its affiliated entities, other Alaska Native corporations and private employers in the Cook Inlet region to learn about potential employment and training opportunities. Instead of the usual resume development workshop, 2016 Job Fair attendees had the opportunity to access a bank of computers where they were able to work on and print their resumes, with Cook Inlet Tribal Council representatives on-hand to answer questions and offer resume advice. As in the past, CIRI employees held a clothing drive and made available a variety of gently used professional attire and accessories for attendees to choose from for interviews.
