Employee Recruitment Career Fair: SAVE THE DATE!

To assist all employers in all sectors with attracting talent one idea which always emerges from discussions with industry is the value of a career fair to facilitate direct and personal communications between employers and job seekers.

The County of Renfrew is hosting a multi-sector Career Fair, Thursday, March 27th, at the Pembroke Best Western Inn and Conference Centre.   Based on two similar events the County has hosted in the past, each for a single specific company establishing an operation in the County, the Career Fair will be operated in a trade show format.  Each exhibiting organization will be provided with a 6 foot table for display of company literature, videos and job opportunity listings and space behind the table for staff and graphic displays.

Renfrew County will promote the event via print and radio advertisements and social media across the County, nearby Quebec and into Lanark and Hastings Counties, Ottawa and beyond.  Promotion will also be directed at Algonquin College students at the Pembroke and Ottawa Campuses and to other Ottawa area post-secondary schools.  Local residents will be encouraged to share the information about the Career Fair with family, students and friends who reside outside the County.

This event will be free to all invited employers to exhibit and to all attendees seeking information about career and job opportunities, full-time, part-time and seasonal.  Employers provide their corporate information and career opportunity listings in hardcopy and/or they may direct attendees to company websites for more information and to submit applications.  Attendees will be encouraged to bring resumes and will be told to be prepared to complete applications on site and to be ready for a preliminary on the spot interview.

Organizations being invited to participate are: manufacturers, scientific research and development laboratories, high value-added service providers, wood and natural resource processors, agri-business, tourism and hospitality, defence, aerospace, security and monitoring device developers, hospitals, medical and health service providers and municipal government.

Agenda:
11am to 1:45pm: Exhibitor Set-up
2pm: Career Fair opens to public
2pm to 7pm: Refreshments and light foods available to exhibitors in Exhibitor Lounge
7:30pm to 8pm: Career Fair closes, exhibitor dismantle and move out

Interested employers, please RSVP to this email and/or call County of Renfrew Economic Development Services for additional information and to reserve your space.  We will be following up this preliminary communication with a promotional poster and with additional details.

This event is supported by Renfrew County Community Futures Development Corporation, Algonquin College and the Labour Market Group of Renfrew and Lanark.

Need to Know Speaker Series - CBC - It has a past, a present but does it have a future? If yes, what is the roadmap?

March 14: 7–9 pm, Neat Coffee Shop in Burnstown
Topic: CBC - It has a past, a present but does it have a future? If yes, what is the roadmap?
Ian Morrison: Spokesperson for Friends of Canadian Broadcasting will make a case.

Most Canadians have grown up listening to the CBC on the radio and television. The ‘Corporation’ has been an integral part of the fabric that binds Canadians together through it’s national and local programming. Over the decades, reporters on the world stage were employees of the CBC family and were welcomed into our homes. The advent of cable followed by the internet and the 24-hour news cycle has changed everything! Citizens are more skeptical and news organizations are compelled to brand themselves as “Most Trusted” in an effort to convince their audience. The world has changed. Ian Morrison will take us through these issues and more as he maps out a plan for the future.

We encourage people to share their questions and observations. Book dinner at Neat before the event or join us afterward for a mix and mingle. Make it a great night out and it is recommended to book seats in advance to ensure availability.

Tickets: $15 (incl HST) are available online at neatmusicandcoffee.ca or at Neat Coffee Shop. For more info contact: info@needtoknowspeaker.ca
