Today’s labor market is tight. Really tight. Which makes exploring every possible option for finding new employees more important than ever. Graduates from our colleges and universities can be a part of the solution – if you can figure out how to connect with the students who will be a good fit for your organization.
We’ve arranged for representatives of the career centers at three the region’s institutes of higher learning to be our guests at our next meeting. They will share information on internships, career fairs, and placement services to help you find employees for the jobs you have available now and suggest ways to for you to form relationships that may help you fill vacancies in the future.
