The County of Grande Prairie Business Support Network will be hosting a job fair Thursday, September 15th at the Tara Centre at Evergreen Park. The fair is a collaborative endeavour that includes the County and several other local organizations.
Community Futures Grande Prairie and Region Executive Director Holly Sorgen said the business community in the County has asked for an event like this to be held. One of the major concerns of businesses was how to find and retain employees.
“Earlier this year we started to really recognize the labour market was getting tighter. There's a large portion of small businesses that don't really have the wherewithal to host their own job fair.”
The event is free and will be from noon until 8pm, plus for job seekers, there will be free childcare. Businesses interested in signing up to take part in the job fair can register online to Eventbrite and search for County of Grande Prairie BSN.
