"You can go from the job fair to collecting a paycheck, in hopefully, just a couple of short weeks," Castrow explained.

If you're on unemployment, there's no requirement to search for work to keep benefits.

However, experts caution that could change soon, and Thursday's job fair could be a way to improve your resume.

"You never know in this COVID environment when everything is constantly changing. You might even learn some new skills you didn't know you could do and take that into your long-term career," Castrow said.
