Need a McJob?

Looking for work? There are two events (one nationwide, the other in Tulsa) Tuesday that could help you land a job.

Need a McJob?

Tuesday April 19 is McDonald’s National Hiring Day. The fast food chain says it’ll fill 50,000 openings at its restaurants nationwide. There nearly 200 McDonald’s in Oklahoma, with more than 8900 employees. It’s looking to add 300 more workers tomorrow.

McDonald’s is hiring restaurant crew and management for full-time and part-time positions. If you’re interested, you can apply in stores or online.

Tulsa job fair 

More than 40 major employers are expected to be conducting interviews and hiring applicants at a big job fair in Tulsa on Tuesday. It’s being called the largest hiring event so far this year in Tulsa. Some of the employers that are participating include:

  • Spirit Aerosystems
  • Southcrest Hospital
  • River Spirit Casino
  • Carmax
  • Braums

Here’s the when and where:

  • Renaissance Hotel
  • 71st and Hwy 169 Tulsa
  • 10am to 2pm

Forget the flip-flops, not the resume

I’ve been to many of these job fairs over the years, and I’m always amazed how many people don’t come prepared. They walk in wearing sweats and flip-flops, and leave their resumes at home. Trust me, prospective employers notice and they do sometimes hire on-the-spot. Here’s some good advice for dressing for job fairs. Good luck.
