BROCKVILLE – There are lots of jobs in the Brockville area, the job market is booming!
That’s the message The Employment + Education Centre (EEC) wants job seekers to take to heart as we head into the spring hiring season.
The Second Annual EEC Spring Hiring Fair is set for Thursday, March 1 from 11 am – 2 pm at the Brockville Memorial Centre ( 100 Magedoma Blvd.)
“Many employers in our area are currently hiring or are looking for staff to start work soon,” explained EEC’s Employer Services Coordinator, Kim Barkley. “Our hiring fair is a great way to link local job seekers with area employers looking to hire.”
Kim adds there is a diverse range of local employers who are looking to hire, which run the gamut from local healthcare providers and government organizations to retailers, restaurants and accommodations providers as well and construction and landscaping firms.
“We have employers looking to hire for both full and part-time positions as well as summer students,” she explains. More than 20 employers are now registered with more coming on board every day.
The EEC invites anyone who is looking to improve their resumes or other employment materials to come to the agency (located at 105 Strowger Blvd. in Brockville) between February 26 and 28 to get help in the Resource Centre. The agency is open Monday and Tuesday from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm and Wednesday from 8:30 am – 7 pm.
