LGBTQ Career Fair — Monday, August 19th – 11am-2pm

Lambda Business Association and The Center are pleased to announce the next LGBTQ Career Fair to be held on Monday, August 19 at The LGBTQ Community Center in downtown Las Vegas. Present on those days will be numerous local corporations, government organizations, and small businesses eager to share information about their available positions. Those who will have a table present at the Career Fair have demonstrated ongoing support of our human rights and will provide a welcoming, equal workplace for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer employees.

Bring Your Resumé

Bring plenty of copies of your resumé. Some employers will be accepting resumes and applications on-site. Others will still require an online application. PRO TIP: Carry your resumés in a folder. It looks more professional and keeps you organized.

Dress for Success

You only have one chance to make a good impression. Come dressed to impress. You don't need an expensive power suit to make a good impression but proper grooming is essential. Tweeze it, shave it, comb it, primp it, clip it, file it, and be your best self.

Practice Your Pitch

The last thing a hiring manager wants to hear is how good you are at everything and you’ll take any job. You know what you’re good at and you know what you’ll hate doing for 8 hours a day. Practice your pitch and sell your best qualities in under 15 seconds.

Hospitality 101

In addition to your resumé, bring copies of your TAM, Sherrif’s and Pour cards if you’re applying for jobs in hospitality. Don’t have those? You can start the process ahead of time and not having them right now will not disqualifiy you from getting hired.
