The Tri County Community Career Day Fair, was held on Wed May 18th, 2011 from 11 to 1 at the Sunnybrook Ballroom in Pottstown, PA.
Judy Fobes and Cathy Matta from our Chester County office and Maureen Swanson of the Montgomery County Seniors Helping Seniors were in attendance. There were approximately 450 applicants seeking employment during the two hour period. TriCounty Community Network’s Exelon Nuclear Workforce Development Program hosted the career fair. Fifty employers participated in the fair, offering job opportunities from entry level to executive positions.
Once again, our unique company lifted the spirits of many of the unemployed seniors. We received numerous comments that as an out of work senior, they had little or no prospects for gainful employment. Since the job fair several of the applicants have been interviewed by our staff and will soon be back in the workforce. Here’s to our win/win approach for the local Senior Community!
