CORNWALL, Ontario – The Cornwall and Area Job Fair is happening now.
The Job Fair will be held at the Benson Centre over 5 days stretching from October 19 to October 27. The event is organized by the Social Development Council (SDC) and is free and open to anyone seeking employment opportunities in Cornwall, Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, and Akwesasne.
“Recruitment has emerged as the number one issue facing local employers as there are currently over 250 positions open in the region right now,” says Carilyne Hébert, Executive Director of the SDC. “The Job Fair is an effective way to connect job seekers and recruiters and at the same time showcase the community.”
Each Job Fair day will feature two sessions to allow people with different schedules attend the event:
- 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
- 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Access to the job fair will be controlled to meet local public health and safety guidelines. Attendees will need to show proof of vaccination in order to enter the building.
