ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) THe 17th annual St. Cloud Area Job Fair is being held next Tuesday, September 24th. 

Linda Yozamp of the Minnesota Workforce Center says last year, there were 1,300 job applicants at the job fair. She says, "it's another way for jobseekers to talk with employers about current or future job openings."

Yozamp says many employers interview or schedule appointments for job applicants right at the job fair. She says applicants should bring copies of their resume and dress as if they're going to a job interview.

She says around 65 business from various sectors will be at this year's Job Fair. It runs from 12:30 to 4:30 pm at the River's Edge Convention Center. 

Yozamp says the Job Fair starts at 12:30, but job seekers should show up a little earlier than that
