Hawkesbury, February 21st, 2013 – Preparations are well on the way for the 2nd edition of the Job Fair, and it's with pleasure that the Employment Services Centre announced today that employers at the fair will have over 290 positions available in the region for job seekers! This number includes over 135 positions in the Prescott area, and more than 155 positions in the Russell area, with some jobs offered in both territories. And, this number is still increasing since we are awaiting employer confirmations in regards to their jobs to offer at the fair!
« Our Job Developers were determined to get employers from different industries to register at our events, which allows for a nice variety of positions offered," said André Roy, General Manager for the Employment Services Centre. "Again this year, we can offer job seekers diversified positions ranging from Graphic Artists, Customer Service Clerks, to Programmers and other internet related positions, Sales Representatives or Technicians, Laborers, Mechanics or Waiters, as well as positions in health care such as Personal Support Workers, Nurses and even a Doctor's position. These are only a few examples, many more are to be discovered. Furthermore, some employers did confirm that they will also be offering summer jobs to students at the fair. This event is a MUST for anyone seeking work in the area, and we hope to conclude like last year with quality merges between employers and job seekers for the positions available at the fair," added Mr. Roy.
All jobs offered at the fair can be seen on the employer cards located on the fair's website at www.csepr.ca/foire-emploi. Simply click on the employer logo to see a brief description of the company including the positions offered. Job seekers are invited to regularly visit the site since positions are added as they are confirmed to the Centre by employers.
