More than 30 companies attending job fair

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - If you're looking for a job, you might want to check out a job fair being held Wednesday at the West Palm Beach Marriott. 

More than 30 companies will attend the fair including: Coca Cola, Macy's, Lincoln College, Northwestern Mutual, Aflac and WPTV.

Job fair organizers say the biggest mistake people make when attending these fairs is not visiting every table. 

Advisors also say to make sure you tell every employer what career you are looking for. They may be able to refer you to another company that is hiring.

Other job fair tips include:

* Before you approach a potential employer, make sure you do your research by visiting the company's website

* Bring at least 15 copies of your resume. Do not tell an employer you will e-mail it to them

* If you need a morning coffee to wake you up, throw it away before you walk inside

* Don't talk or text on your cellphone during the career fair

"What can you do for our company? Have that ready in the back of your head. Where do you want to be in five years, and what makes you the right person for this position," said Chris Misir, job fair organizer.

The West Palm Beach Marriott is located at 1001 Okeechobee Blvd.  The job fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Parking and admission is free.
