Job Fair and Info Sessions

In response to the recent layoffs in our region, we are organizing a Job Fair March 18, 2009 at NSCC Kingstec. This will be a similar format to the job fair that was held two years ago at the Old Orchard Inn, which saw over 700 job seekers in attendance.

This event will be open to anyone from the public who wishes to participate (job seekers do not need to register).

The format for the day is as follows: 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., information sessions for the unemployed workforce; noon to 7 p.m., Job Fair.

Employers: Attendance will be free for employers who currently have available job openings. You will be provided with table space to showcase your current opportunities, should you be able to attend. If you have current job opportunities but are unable to attend, we will keep job postings on hand that day and will accept resumes on your behalf.

Service Providers: As part of our efforts to get as much information out to our community, we are offering any service providers (workforce and business development organizations) space to showcase your services.

To sign up for table space, contact the Kings CED Agency by phone at (902) 678-2298 or via e-mail at meastman@kingsced.ns.ca.
