85-hundred jobs are up for grabs Thursday at Verizon Arena in North Little Rock.
If you plan on going to the Career Expo put on by the Department of Workforce Services, bring a resume on a thumb drive.
When you get there, park anywhere, and don't bring any cash. The event is free and parking is free. Just make sure you go to the box office entrance. That's where you will sign in, get a map, and either go to one of four workshops, or chat with one of the more than one-hundred employers on hand.
Insurance company American General Life and Accident wants to hire six to ten insurance sales agents and managers tomorrow.
"Self motivated. Good character. Can actually talk to people," says Rob Boling of the people he wants to hire.
If you're changing careers or haven't gone on an interview in a while don't show up looking like a hot mess.
"You don't want to wear anything too short. No flip-flops, cut-offs, T-shirts. You want to make your hair look presentable. Don't overdo the makeup and the perfume," says Kimberly Friedman with the Department of Workforce Services.
Friedman says do wear a business suit. If you don't have one, you can't go wrong with business casual. That means wearing a nice shirt and slacks. Men should wear a tie.
"You don't want an employer to remember you for how well you looked, or how well you were dressed instead of, you know, how bad you looked," says Friedman.

So many companies want to hire new employees this year, there is now a waiting list in case one of the vendors cancels.
The career fair goes from ten til four Thursday at Verizon Arena.
