If you're looking for work, you're in luck. The Northland Job Fair is coming up in Duluth.

Job searchers were at a workshop Thursday morning prepping for the event. They learned about resumes, interviewing and how to approach employers.

The fifth annual job fair is May 7 at the DECC and workers said it's good timing.

"It's a great time to go to the job fair because here in Duluth we're adding jobs," DEED Regional Labor Market Analyst Jan Saxhaug said. "There's more jobs than there was a year ago today. There are fewer unemployed folks and there are just more people working."

Jason McLevis was one of about 20 people at the workshop Thursday.

"I hope to get a few contacts," McLevis said. "I'm looking for any type of warehouse work or manufacturing."

The Northland Job Fair runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the general public. Veterans, students and interns can come an hour early.

If you want to attend a workshop at the Minnesota Workforce Center before the event, there is one on Monday and Tuesday.

On May 5, the workshop is from 9 to 10:30 a.m. for veterans only. The other one is on May 6 from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

The job fair will have many different employers from around the Northland. Sponsors vary from NORTHFORCE to Cliffs Natural Resources to Essentia Health.
