A new year means new opportunities, especially if you've been on the hunt for a job.

Many people who've worked their entire adult lives have found themselves out of work due to the pandemic, or are looking to make a change and pursue a new career. In either case, it would be wise to take every opportunity to put your resume out there and see who's looking to hire someone with your experience and skillset.

This Saturday, January 23 from 10AM to 2PM, Express Employment Professionals in Temple will be hosting a free drive-thru job fair. You'll find them at 200 West Calhoun Avenue.

No appointment is required, but you can preregister on either Express' Temple or Killeen website.

At the event, you'll be able to interview with a recruiter from the comfort and safety of your vehicle. Be sure to bring your resume (of course), along with identification documents to show you're eligible for employment. There'll be recruiters looking to hire for full and part-time positions in long-term and temporary jobs.

If you can't make it out to this weekend's drive-thru event, you can see job listings on Express' Temple and Killeen websites, where you'll find more information and local job resources to help you find a good fit. They've also been holding these events fairly frequently, so you may be able to attend the next one.

Just remember that you have a lot to offer potential employers, and bring that confidence and determination to the interview. Your experience is valuable, so make sure these potential employers know that.
