One CAMW! resource that benefits both the businesses and job seekers alike is the CAMW! Employer of the Day events. These events allow representatives from a company to come to one or more of our American Job Centers and share their open positions with job seekers. Businesses can use this time and exposure however you like. Many employers conduct on-site interviews to reach more candidates. Job seekers then can learn about open positions within that company and get connected on the spot.
