Employers present at each location will have diversified positions to offer job seekers who come and meet with them : permanent, temporary, part-time and even summer jobs.
“This year, our job fair is back both in Hawkesbury and in Rockland, and we are certainly very proud to offer such a large number of positions to the population of Prescott-Russell and area,” said André Roy, Executive Manager for the Employment Services Centre. “And, thanks to the strategic work done beforehand by our Job Developers, a wide variety of employers who have real and diversified positions to fill will be present in each location. This being said, any serious job seeker should take advantage of this fact and visit both fairs,” added Mr. Roy. “The Job fair is a unique opportunity to meet recruiters from different companies who are present and allow candidates to impress them. This is true when one has an interest for a specific position that’s available, but it’s also an opportunity to stand out for future positions they will have to fill. In fact, during the last years, several employers told us that they come back to résumés collected at the fair when they need to hire during the following year,” concluded Mr. Roy.
