The Employment and Education Centre (EEC) is gearing up for its third annual Spring Hiring Fair. The event is set for February 20 at the Brockville Memorial Centre. It runs from 11:00am to 2:00pm.
The EEC is still looking for employers to take part. The goal is to have between 40 and 45 at the fair.
Employer Services Coordinator Kim Barkley says last year’s fair featured employers from all sectors. She says the spring is generally the best time of year for people to find work.
This year’s fair coincides with post-secondary Reading Week to allow students an opportunity to find summer jobs.
Barkley says a Facebook group and Instagram page are in place for students who can’t attend in person. Posts will include employers and what jobs they have available.
