Preparations for the Job Fair for adults at the Recreation Center in Riverside-Albert are progressing nicely. Employers such as Fundy National Park, Hopewell Cape Rocks, Cape Enrage and Forest Dale Nursing Home have already confirmed their attendance.
If you are an employer and are looking for an employee to work, either full-time, part-time or by the activity, you are invited to attend.
If you are seeking employment, you will have the opportunity to talk with several potential employers and explain what you have to offer. If you do not have a resume, you will be able to obtain assistance at the Job Fair in completing one.
The Chipoudy Communities Revitalization Committee (CCRC) will organize a “Job Fair” for adults on Thursday, April 16, 2015, from 4pm To 8 pm at the Riverside-Albert Recreation Centre. The idea for the fair arose from local business owners who have found it difficult to find employees who have a strong work ethic and view attendance as a responsibility. Many adults in the area would like to work, but often prefer a part-time position. We believe that there are many opportunities to match employee skill sets with needs of employers. Perhaps there are seniors who have worked many years and acquired bookkeeping, landscaping, customer relations, maintenance, or a myriad of other skills, and would like to work 2 days a week. There may be a small business owner who needs that skill for that short period of time. We propose to create a “bank” of skilled people from which employers could draw valued employees.
Let us know if you are interested in such a concept, whether you are an employer or an adult with skills to share. Call 882-2573 or 734-2044, and watch the CCRC Facebook page for details!
