The Economic Development Coalition and the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce partner annually with numerous workforce and industry allies to promote employment opportunities in advanced manufacturing, health care, and other growth industries in Western North Carolina. Residents, students, graduates and former residents are encouraged to attend this one-stop opportunity to meet directly with representatives from companies that will be hiring in 2014 or organizations promoting awareness to potential future employees. The event will be held Wednesday, January 8, 2014 at the Davis Event Center within the WNC Ag Center. Employers may register online at www.homecomingjobfair.com for Western North Carolina's largest recruiting event! No registration necessary for job seekers.
Job seekers are cordially invited to a FREE JOB SEEKER CONFERENCE presented by WNC Human Resource Association and the Asheville Chamber of Commerce in conjunction on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at AB Tech’s Ferguson Auditorium from 1- 5 PM. Free parking will be provided.
During the Job Seeker conference, attendees will learn the three R’s of finding a job: Research, Resumes and Relationships. Attendees will receive real time advice from HR experts regarding every piece of the job seeking process: from the cover letter to the thank you letter. Participants will also get to see a real live fashion show sponsored by Goodwill’s Success Outfitters.
In the last hour of the program, attendees will have the opportunity to practice their new skills. They will attend a mock job fair with representatives from sundry industries represented in Western North Carolina. This is a practice run for attendees to try out what they just learned, ask honest questions, and make some connections within the workforce.
