A workshop on how ex-convicts can find a job in this tough economy is part of a steady stream of events trying to connect North Carolina's unemployed workers to companies with jobs to fill.
The career expo Wednesday at North Carolina State University's McKimmon Center is open to the public. The usual array of learning
to network and writing winning resumes will be joined by a seminar
offering job-hunting tips for ex-offenders.
The Raleigh event is part of a long list of events put on by the state's JobLink employment offices. Another job fair was held Tuesday at Catawba Valley Community College in Hickory. Two more are scheduled for Thursday in Morehead City and Winston-Salem. Others later this month are in New Bern, Kinston, Concord and Charlotte.
