Hawkesbury, January 9, 2018– The Employment Services Centre (CSEPR) proudly announced today that its Job Fair will be back next March in Prescott-Russell. The 7th edition of the Job Fair will be held on Saturday, March 17, 2018, at École secondaire catholique régionale de Hawkesbury (ÉSCRH) in Hawkesbury and March 24, 2018, at the River Rock Inn in Rockland.

“It’s amazing to think that we are now at our 7th year at organizing the job fair. And it’s with the same enthusiasm that the Centre’s team works at organizing it,” said André Roy, Executive Director for the Employment Services Centre. “As in past years, a minimum of 25 employers will be present in each location. Although the minimum number of employers has already been reached, some spaces remain available for those who would like to participate in the event. In order to signify their interest, employers need to quickly contact our Job Developers who will guide them towards registering. For job seekers, our professional employment counsellors offer them free job fair preparation workshops again this year, to be held two weeks prior to the event. These workshops will be given both in French and in English, and aim at supplying job seekers with tools to help them stand out from the crowd during the event, and thus, optimize their chances at getting an interview and a job. Furthermore, and as to better meet the needs of our clients, the schedule for the event has been modified. The job fair will be held from 9 AM to 2 PM at indicated dates,” concluded Mr. Roy.
Again this year, a section of our website will be dedicated to the fair and will be activated at the beginning of February 2018. This launch will also mark the beginning of the vast promotional campaign surrounding the event which also offers incredible visibility to participating employers. For job seekers, the website is a source of information to discover which employers will be present in each location, but also to know what jobs they will have available at the fair. The website will also offer several tips and tricks to better prepare for the event. For employers, they will find information to help them prepare for their participation at the fair. The website is an incredible source of information and should be visited regularly to get all the details pertaining to the fair. The website address to remember is : csepr.ca/foire-emploi.
