Sawgrass Mills holding job fair
SUNRISE, Fla. (WSVN) -- In preparation for the upcoming holiday season, Sawgrass Mills hosted a job fair Friday.
More than 40 retailers are looking to fill hundreds of full and part-time positions during this job fair on Friday. "This year, we've added 20 more retailers to the job fair, making 60 total here offering jobs this year," Assistant Director of Marking and Business Valentina Baragano said.
Some job seekers, such as Calvin Jack, are hoping to hear back from a potential employer. "I filled out a couple of applications and dropped them off," Jack said. "Hopefully, one of them will give me a call. On-line, you're just a resume, you're just words, but in person, you can actually get their vibe and look at them."
Some of the retailers looking for future employees include Victoria's Secret, Michael Kors Outlet, Banana Republic Factory Store, Janie and Jack Outlet and J. Crew Factory.
Some jobseekers accompanied by family members, such as Alexandra Likhachyov kept her son company Friday. "I'm helping him fill things out and making sure it's neat and stuff like that," Alexandra Likhachyov said. "Retail, entry level, because he's in college."
