nhes_jobfair8-9-18.jpgThe best time to find a new job is NOW!

With a 2.6% unemployment rate and booming economy New Hampshire employers are scrambling to fill vacancies. And that means it's a great time to think about a new job. 

NH Employment Security (NHES) will be holding a series of job fairs throughout the state between August and October to connect job seekers with employers. 

The first NHES job fair is 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM Thursday, August 9th at the Everett Arena in Concord. They've even included a list of employers who will be attending and a tip sheet for how to work a job fair


  • 8/9/18 Concord Job & Resource Fair


  • 9/6/18 Nashua Job & Resource Fair Nashua 
  • 9/10/18 Portsmouth Job & Resource Fair
  • 9/13/18 Manchester Job & Resource Fair
  • 9/18/18 Laconia Job & Resource Fair
  • 9/20/18 Concord Job & Resource Fair


  • 10/9/18 Claremont Job & Resource Fair
  • 10/16/18 Berlin Job & Resource Fair

If you want to get serious about your job search be sure to kick up your networking and talk to a recruiter.  

In addition to having connections to jobs not posted on the web, a recruiter can help you find ways to repurpose your existing skills and experience for fields you've never thought of and help you sell those skills to hiring managers. 

Whether you're just starting out or looking for a change, this is the best job market we've seen for employees in at least twenty years.  Take advantage of it. 


Reminder: Check out the webinars at the bottom of the page.
