Speakers include Patrick Bokovitz, Director of the Chester County Workforce Development Board, as well as Maria O’Connell, Owner of Express Employment Professionals, and Jim Lauckner, Senior Project Consultant at the Chester County Economic Development Council for the Hire One program.
Topics discussed during the webinar include training and services available through the PA CareerLink® Chester County website, coaching points for active job seekers, and the hiring environment in Chester County.
"We are finding out that many individuals wait until unemployment compensation runs out or until the summer ends before seeking employment,” said Pat Bokovitz. “The webinar’s speakers will emphasize that the best time to look for employment is sooner rather than later, and we encourage participants to ask questions after the speakers’ presentation.”
The webinar is free and will be hosted by Chester County Commissioners Marian Moskowitz, Josh Maxwell and Michelle Kichline. It is backed by the County’s nine chambers of commerce, and other economic, education and government leaders—all members of the COVID-19 Business Task Force and its Restore Chester County initiative.
Slides and resources from previous webinars can be found at the recently launched Restore Chester County website. Through the site, businesses, organizations, and residents can confidently navigate through these materials and other reopening guidelines with both overall and industry-specific guidance relating to COVID-19.
