Virtual Job Fairs to Begin April 28

The Tenth Annual York County Job Fair will be run a little differently this year than it has been in the past. Due to the pandemic, the Job Fair will be held online via Zoom webinar and will actually be three separate events. The first Job Fair will be held Wednesday, April 28, from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. It will focus on the Hospitality sector, and will feature employers from the hotel, restaurant and recreation industries.

During the webinar, each employer will have 8 minutes to highlight their company and their job opportunities. Presentations may include videos or PowerPoint slides. Job seekers can ask questions using the Zoom chat function.

This is a great opportunity for those seeking employment to become part of the Maine tourist industry’s post-pandemic rebound. Employers are motivated and looking to get their teams in place before the season kicks off. Some positions may be seasonal and others may be year-round.

Employers can register to be part of this event through April 26. Go to sanfordchamber.org to register your company.

Job seekers must also register in advance, through April 27. When registering, you can elect to have your contact info shared directly with employers. Use this link to sign up: https://www.mainecareercenter.com/locations/jobfair.shtml?id=4463185

The second and third Job Fairs are scheduled for May 5 and May 7, and will feature employers from all sectors.

The Job Fairs are being co-sponsored by the Sanford-Springvale Chamber of Commerce and the York County Career Center.
