Employers in the Market Plaza

During Care Center open hours, we host employers in the Market Plaza. It’s not uncommon to have four or eight employers stop by a week! This is a great way to meet and learn about local employers and positions in the area. Here’s who is coming:

Employment Counseling & Computer Skills Development

Finding a job requires an acquired skill set that always needs sharpening and refining in today’s ever-changing staffing market.  If you’re looking for a job, a volunteer employment counselor can meet with you to help direct you to employers that are hiring and answer your questions.  Resumes, LinkedIn, job search tools, computer skills–we can help! Make an appointment to meet in-person or virtually. 

In person appointments are available Wednesday mornings from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Willow Cafe.  Come enjoy a free beverage on us and meet with a caring employment professional who is happy to guide you on your journey.

Phone appointment times vary.  An employment professional will call you at your scheduled phone appointment time or provide a link for a virtual conversation.
