8th Annual Central VT Job Fair
April 5, 2017 at the Barre Auditorium 10AM – 4PM
The Central Vermont Economic Development Corporation and Creative Workforce Solutions are hosting the 8th Annual Central Vermont Job Fair on April 5th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Barre City Auditorium.
Last year’s event had 60 businesses participating from in and around Central Vermont. Jobs ranged from Auto Mechanics to Computer Engineers with everything in between including wait staff, medical professionals, HR directors, production managers, sales representatives, and hospitality managers.
Nationally known companies such as Home Depot and Shaws attended the fair, as well as our local businesses such as Cabot Hosiery, Cabot Creamery Cooperative and Vermont Flannel Company.
Two local radio stations, WDEV Radio VT, and Frank FM attended and offered all day live broadcasting from Barre with sporadic interviews by WDEV throughout the day. This year we will have live coverage from WDEV and Frank, and Froggy FM.
Last year’s event was very well attended approximately 850 job seekers both employed and unemployed.
The one on one semi-private interview space was a popular attraction for many vendors who wanted a quieter area off the floor for asking candidates more in depth questions.
A resource room will also be provided again this year for job seekers that would like assistance with their resumes, or need to use a computer to fill out an on-line job application. The resource room will also be equipped with a photo copier for free resume copying. Volunteers will once again be on hand to assist with resume editing and applications as needed. Over 200 people utilized this area last year.
A big thank you to the sponsors that make this event possible: The VT Dept. of Labor, Associated General Contractors of Vermont, Northfield Savings Bank, Community National Bank, the Central Vermont Workforce Partnership through Capstone, VABIR, CVEDC and VocRehab Vermont for their assistance.
