DAVIE (CBSMiami) — Over 900 jobs are up for grabs at a major job fair to be held on Wednesday.

Sixty companies will be attending the event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Signature Grand, 6900 State Road 84, Davie.

The event is sponsored by Miami Herald, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Clear Channel Radio, Caribbean Cruise Lines and The Check Cashing Store.

Among the companies attending are Marriott Harbor Beach and Renaissance Hotel, which are offering over 100 hospitality jobs, including front desk representatives, servers, cooks and bartenders.

Community Blood Centers is hiring 40 people for entry-level positions starting at $18.27/hour with no experience needed.

Senior Bridge has over 40 immediate openings for nurses, caregivers and pharmacists.

Officials from the job fair offer this advice:

  • Avoid The Lines. Pre-register online at www.jobnewsftl.com, print it out and bring it with you.
  • Bring Plenty Of Résumés. Fifty should be enough.
  • Dress For A Job Interview. Many of the companies will interview and even hire on the spot so you want to make a good first impression.
  • Get Noticed By Applying Online. Pick out 5-10 companies from the list below that you are interested in working for and visit their website to apply online. If you receive a confirmation code or a print out of the application, bring it with you to show the company that you are especially interested in employment.
  • Get Connected. Ask the hiring manager at each booth for a business card so you can follow up with them.
  • Ask The Most Important Question. “When can I start?!”
