Are you out of work or looking for a change of pace? Today may be a good day to slip down to the Washington Convention Center, where around 100 employers are stationed and looking for recent graduates and even seasoned professionals.

This morning starting at 10 a.m., they'll be offering resume and fashion tips for job seekers, and starting at 11 a.m., federal, state and local employers will be out courting new hires.

D.C Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton is hosting the event and expects young and old applicants alike.

“They have another time to do one-stop shopping for jobs from all over the region, everything from account executives to food service workers to bus operators to IT technicians — they'll all be there. People with jobs," Norton says.

The jobs fair is restricted to D.C. residents, so you'll need to bring a proof of residency, which can be a District ID, voting card, utility bill or a pay stub. Organizers also recommend you print out a handful of resumes to pass out to potential employers.
