In taking that next step in your career, it is important to make personal connections with people in the community. These connections will pay dividends in the weeks, months and years to come.
Job seekers will have the opportunity to make dozens of new connections as they meet face to face with recruiters at the Cornwall and Area Job Fair.
“Over 65 local employers will be on hand to provide more information on available jobs in the region,” says Carilyne Hébert, Executive Director of the
Social Development Council of Cornwall and Area. “Job seekers can also meet local service providers who can provide anything from training to resumé review to career coaching.”
There are over 800 jobs that are currently available in Cornwall, SDG and Akwesasne. These jobs are in multiple sectors and range from entry level to management positions. Learn about jobs in logistics, manufacturing, administration, health care, education, customer service, hospitality, social services, finance and so much more.
“Are you looking to take the next step in your career? Meeting face to face with potential employers is the best way to make an impression and bring you closer to that new adventure,” says Ms. Hébert.
For those people new to Canada or currently in school, the job fair is a great way to learn more about the process of securing a job.
The Eastern Ontario Training Board along with the Newcomer Employment Welcome Services Centre will be providing an added feature at this year’s job fair: Community Connections. While on site you will have a chance to meet many service providers that are ready to help you with training and education, entrepreneurship, and employment readiness programs.
