National Career Fairs

National Career Fairs will have a job fair today from 11 am to 2 pm at the Hilton Phoenix Airport.

You will have the opportunity to meet top employers and to interview for several positions during the course of the day, meeting the people who make the hiring decisions. You will save a lot of time since there will be no need to craft a customized personal statement for each company you visit: You'll be able to tell them why you wish to work for them, and you'll have the chance to sell yourself.

Dress in your best professional clothes, bring resumes and visit our Phoenix Career Fairs.

Prepping your pup for patio season

1. Before you hit the busy dog-friendly patios this fall, you have to prep your pup!
2. Start small take your dog to a quiet coffee shop before heading to, say, O.H.S.O., which is filled with stimulation at every turn that can overwhelm your dog.
3. Try basic obedience classes having that bond and trust between you and your dog is a great foundation for being well-mannered at a patio. Basic obedience includes mastery of commands such as "sit, stay, down, place, leave it and come"
4. Bring something to distract your dog a lot of fun is happening above the table, but give your dog a peanut-butter-stuffed toy so he or she doesn't get bored or distracted by passing cars or birds
5. Bring the right gear a front-lead harness keeps a dog feeling comfortable but also obedient. Back-clip harnesses can make dogs feel like they're off leash and they may act out more.
