Community Career Expo coming up at Two Harbors High School on Monday
The struggle continues when it comes to finding good employees. And the busy summer tourism season is around the corner, which is when those businesses need to be at their best.
That’s why the Lake County Chamber of Commerce is stepping up to help. They’ve organized their first Community Career Expo. 80 businesses have signed on.
The goal is to help overcome employee shortage challenges and connect hiring businesses with area job seekers.
Janelle Jones, Executive Director of the Lake County Chamber of Commerce, said, “I think we’re all waiting for snow to melt, for the sun to be shining, and our busy season. I’ve heard from different places that they are having better luck hiring this year. Which is good. But there are still a lot of industries really looking for employees. If we can try and put people together in one big room, where they fill out job applications, that’s going to be a win for everybody.”
It’s coming up on Monday, April 3rd at the Two Harbors High School.
Students from both Two Harbors and William Kelley will attend during the day, from 1-4, and then the public is invited to show up from 4-8pm.
The Career Expo will hold career-building activities, allowing folks to receive resume guidance and assistance, participate in mock interviews, and get free digital headshots onsite.
In the evening, concessions will be open for dinner, and there will also be face painting and fun activities for kids and families.
