Jobseekers Register Now

Now in its sixth year, the Marlborough Works! Job Fair is the largest annual job fair in Marlborough. Organized by Mayor Arthur Vigeant’s office in collaboration with the Marlborough Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), this event attracts dozens of employers and hundreds of jobseekers every year. 

NEW THIS YEAR: The Apex Center Room!

This year, in addition to filling its regular space with local companies of all sizes, the Marlborough Works! Job Fair will also host a designated room for the Apex Center employers! The Apex Center of New England is a 475,000-square-foot mixed-use development that consists of a 150,000-square-foot entertainment complex, two hotels, six restaurants, and a variety of retail stores and office buildings.

The companies located within the Apex Center are now getting ready to open for business, and they are looking to fill hundreds of open positions. At the Marlborough Works! Job Fair, jobseekers will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the Apex Center employers and become one of the first people to land a job at this major Marlborough entertainment complex.

A job fair is your perfect opportunity to meet recruiters and employers face to face and show them just why they should hire you. When you are trying to make a good, lasting impression on your future employer, here are few things to remember:

  • Bring your existing job application and/or job application reference number
    We strongly encourage you to review all of the positions available through this web page and apply for as many as you can online. Then print a copy of your application and bring it with you to the job fair. This will give hiring personnel the opportunity to meet their applicants in person (you!) and make notes about them directly on their applications. Plus, you will be sending the message that you are serious about the job and have already done the legwork to research the company and apply for the position.
  • Bring your resume
    Bring as many copies of your resume as there are companies you want to see. Paper copies are probably the easiest, but USB copies are also accepted and even encouraged by some employers.
  • Dress to impress
    You know the saying “Dress for the job you want, not the one you have”? That is how you should approach this job fair. While employers are not looking to conduct interviews, they are exploring their candidate pool and paying close attention to details. If you want to get their attention, dress to impress!
  • Bring references
    You know you are a great candidate, but it’s always good to show that others think you are too. Bringing references shows potential employers that you have nothing to hide and that others are ready to vouch for you.
  • Bring your portfolio (optional)
    Samples of previous work are one of the best ways for an employer to determine whether you are who they are looking for. It is a great chance to stand out, so, if you have a portfolio, bring it and show it off proudly.
  • Bring business cards (optional)
    Some people work as contractors on a freelance basis, so they have business cards. If you have them, bring them. If you don’t, don’t worry about it. They really are optional.
  • Do not bring your kids
    This probably goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: please, leave your children at home.
While most job applications are done online, without any human interaction, job fairs are the perfect place for jobseekers to meet recruiters and employers face to face.

If you are looking for a job in Marlborough, this job fair is your opportunity to learn more about the local employment market, follow up on an existing job application and make a memorable impression on your future employer, so that they call you in for an interview. If you’ve never attended a job fair before, here is what you can expect:

  • Lineups
    You will likely see a line-up to register, before you actually enter the hall. We suggest that you pre-register online to avoid this. You will also see lineups for individual employers inside the hall. You might consider making a list of employers you’d like to meet ahead of time and approach the ones that are least busy first.
  • No interviews
    You are very unlikely to get a job interview on the spot. What you will get is an opportunity to discuss a position you are interested in and have already applied for directly with the hiring personnel. This will help you formulate a better idea of what the company is looking for and give them a chance to put a face to a name and get to know you better as a potential candidate. See the GET READY section of this page for tips on preparing for these meetings.
