Cornwall Job Fair set for October 16August 23, 2019
Cornwall, Ontario – Cornwall’s economy continues to be strong, with local companies creating new jobs in a variety of sectors.
Job seekers will have a chance to meet employers up close and personal at the Cornwall and Area Job Fair in October.
The Job Fair will be held at the Cornwall Civic Complex on Wednesday, October 16 and is being organized by the Social Development Council (SDC). The event is free and open to anyone seeking employment or volunteer opportunities in Cornwall, Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, and Akwesasne.
“The hiring climate remains strong in the Cornwall region, with some employers looking further and further afield to find the right people,” says Carilyne Hébert, Executive Director of the SDC. “The Job Fair has proven to be an effective way to connect job seekers and recruiters and at the same time showcase the community.”
The Job Fair will feature two sessions to allow people with different schedules attend the event:
- First Session: 11am-2pm
- Second Session: 4pm-7pm
Both sessions will feature Cornwall, SDG, and Akwesasne employers from various sectors including transportation, warehousing, service and sales, retail, hospitality, and social services.
This is the fifth consecutive year that a Job Fair has been held in Cornwall. Last year’s event connected 41 key employers and 16 service providers with over 1000 job seekers from across the region.
Job seekers will be able to speak directly to recruiters at the Job Fair, and personally hand over their résumés. A list of available jobs in Cornwall can be found on the ChooseCornwall.ca Job Board.
Job Fair booths are available for employers and social service agencies looking to fill part-time and full-time positions for the fall and winter season. Companies interested in registering for a booth should contact Carilyne Hébert at 613-930-0211.
