JOB FAIRS RETURN IN MARCH
Hawkesbury - The Employment Services Centre (CSEPR) recently announced that its third edition of the Job Fair will again be held in March in Prescott-Russell.
Again this year, both Rockland and Hawkesbury will be hosting events. Both job seekers and employer-exhibitors will get to meet during these events schedules for Saturday, March 1 at the River Rock Inn in Rockland and for Saturday, March 8 at the Hawkesbury Regional Catholic High School in Hawkesbury.
Admission is free for both events.
"This year, our events have been moved to bigger locations. This decision was made further to comments received from job seekers who wanted the opportunity to meet with more employers. Thus, we aim at having 70 employers total registered for both events. This means a more diversified number of positions available offered to our community by those employers participating.
"Furthermore, in addition to regular positions, we aim at having student jobs as well," added André Roy, Executive Director for the Employment Services Centre. "We firmly believe that these events are essential in our economy, not only because they contribute in promoting regional employment, but also because they show everyone that there are interesting job opportunities in our towns and villages," to conclude Roy.
"It's no secret; the Prescott-Russell Community Development Corporation (PRCDC) doesn't hesitate to invest in important economic projects for the region", said John Candie, Executive Director for the PRCDC.
"And, for us, the 2014 CSEPR Job Fair was a strategic choice to complement all our other actions we contribute to in our community. It's our way of demonstrating our support for this important event for Prescott-Russell; we are very proud to be the main partner this year," added Candie.
