It’s only November but it’s never too early to plan ahead! As a Career Practitioner/Case Manager with Job Search Services I am excited to say that we have a fantastic opportunity for Cole Harbour, Eastern Passage, Woodlawn and Sheet Harbour business owners. We will be hosting our next job fair on April 17th, 2014 from 9 a.m. -12 p.m. at Cole Harbour Place. Job fairs not only help individual companies and job-seekers, but the community as a whole also benefits. By connecting employers and employees with work we are helping to drive the economy, helping people maintain a higher quality of life and of course helping to keep people in HRM.
We are proud to say that in the past 11 years we have had tremendous success with our previous job fairs. On average we connect over 800 job seekers from various industries and training backgrounds to local employers! What a fantastic and simple way for you to promote your business, achieve your hiring needs by finding matches for your business’ specific skill requirements and connect with employment practitioners from community-based agencies.
Thinking it’s too early to sign up? Just think of the advantages. There is a special early bird package if you submit your job fair package by February 7th, 2014. So make sure to contact Gina at 435-0957 ext. 227 or firstname.lastname@example.org today! For those of you who aren’t quite ready to register, registration will be open until March 3rd, 2014. Space is limited.
