Twice a year, the Main Lobby at Willow Creek transforms into a crossroads for employers seeking to hire and candidates looking for their next career steps. More than 100 local businesses set up tables offering positions in a variety of industries including healthcare, retail, sales, administration, manufacturing, and many more. The Job Fair is impactful for those who find employment, but it’s just as impactful for those who are hiring. “As a company owner, I appreciate that this is a very professionally run event that is productive in finding candidates. It’s also great for networking with other companies in attendance to gather best practices in hiring and many other HR and business functions. The Willow Creek Job Fair has been a blessing to me,” says David Hausner, Hausner Hard Chrome.
Hundreds of guests fill the lobby and are greeted by volunteers ready to help with the prep. Hairdressers provide haircuts, styling, and free makeovers; the Care Center stocks the Career Corner with business-professional clothes; HR professionals review resumes and give interview tips; and the Divine Dogs ministry has therapy dogs ready to help relieve some anxiety.
If you’re looking for a job or want to make a career switch, come to the Job Fair on October 10! If you’re interested in getting involved, contact Anne Rand.
