The Carroll County Business & Employment Resource Center will host a Fall Job Fair on Tuesday, Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its offices, located at 224 N. Carroll St. in Westminster.
"The Carroll County unemployment rate has been falling so it may be more challenging for businesses to find workers for seasonal work and permanent positions," BERC manager Denise Rickell said in a press release. "We are offering this no-cost job fair as our way of helping the local business community; hundreds of job seekers typically attend this annual event and many great job matches are made."
BERC is a local employment and training resource that provides complimentary recruitment, retraining, and retention programs. According to the release, BERC helps businesses find the most qualified employees by posting jobs at the center and on the Maryland Workforce Exchange, assessing candidates using the nationally recognized program "Prove It!," offering skills training, and hosting on-site job fairs.
Job seekers also receive job search assistance and training information at BERC. During the Fall Job Fair, businesses are provided with a recruitment table and assistance in managing applicant flow. BERC personnel will be on hand to assist job seekers, according to the release.
Employers are asked to provide information in advance about the types and number of positions available. Veteran job candidates will also be in attendance. Businesses that are actively recruiting to fill open positions are encouraged to contact Jennifer Maffucci at 410-386-2521 to reserve a spot as space is limited.
