12th YMCA Career Fair
Monday, September 17th, 2012
Ches Penney Family Y
35 Ridge Road, St. John's
The YMCA of Northeast Avalon will be hosting our 12th career fair Monday, September 17th, 2012, from 12:00 pm 7:00 pm at our very own Ches Penney Family Y in St. John’s on 35 Ridge Road. The theme for this fair, “Opportunity Awaits,” is carried over from our March career fair. The theme represents all the career opportunities that are available to the attendees. We are continuing to target various exhibitors from all disciplines hiring within the next six months. We also invite schools who can promote their programs as career development.
The Y Career Fair is open to the public and offers exhibitors access to a wide selection of candidates from all sectors. The advantage to exhibitors is being able to match faces to resumes and provide valuable exposure to their company. For job seekers, it is the opportunity to meet with the people who do the hiring in an organization. In addition, this multi-sector recruitment event is a great opportunity to make connections with qualified candidates and employers who have and are able to participate in a company’s diversity programs.
There is no fee attached to participate in the career fair, however we encourage companies and organizations to make a donation to our annual YMCA Strong Kids Campaign focused on raising much needed financial support for deserving children, youth, and families who are unable to afford the full cost of participation in a Y program or activity.
This September we are expecting about 40 exhibitors and over 500 visitors to attend the event.
For job seekers, be sure to come prepared. Bring at least 10 - 20 copies of your resume for employers who request them and dress as though you are going to an interview. Take this opportunity to explore your options and connect with employers!
