More than 200 people turned out for the event. Over 40 businesses and community based organizations were on hand for jobseekers and community residents to meet and discuss opportunities for full and part time employment positions and resources within the community.
The career and resource fair is held every year and creates an opportunity for residents to look at jobs in the field of social services, retail, food services, manufacturing, customer service and more.
Employment based workshops and trainings are held throughout the year, teaching; job skills and job search techniques to gain employment, including resume writing, dressing for success and interview tips. Employers view these skills as an essential component to obtaining employment.
