We had a huge turnout for the Job Fair last Thursday. Thank you so much to all participants and supporters. Both employers and job seekers report success. Horsebrook Cafe hired several people, with at least one having already started work. One other employer present at last night’s PBA meeting reported receiving 60 applications and another reported several very highly qualified applicants that might never have been found through other methods.
Speaking of last night’s meeting – did you miss it? Meetings are held the third Tuesday of the month, at Jewett City Savings Bank in Central Village. We’d love for you to drop in, whether you’re a local resident or a business owner. To make sure you get reminders of meeting and other PBA events, we’ve created an email list. Sign up over on the right. We’d love to keep you informed about what’s going on with the PBA.
