PA CareerLink Chester County will host a PA CareerLink Day Open House and Resource Fair on Thursday, September 7, at its Exton location. The annual event allows job seekers, employers, and community organizations to explore the resources and services offered by PA CareerLink Chester County and its partners to assist individuals in joining or re-entering the workforce.
Jeannette Roman, Director of the Chester County Workforce Development Board, said, “PA CareerLink Chester County is an incredible – and free – resource for anyone in the job market who wants to connect with job opportunities and employers, learn new skills, and get career coaching.”
Butch Urban, Site Administrator for PA CareerLink Chester County, added, “PA CareerLink Day is timely because it coincides with Labor Day and Workforce Development Month in September, which recognizes the importance of workforce development programs that PA CareerLink Chester County offers. This day is significant because it provides the opportunity for in-person engagements for individuals who have not interacted with PA CareerLink before or simply do not know where to start when looking for a job.”
PA CareerLink Day kicks-off with an interactive Employer Panel workshop featuring hiring professionals from local companies. Job seekers can ask questions, and the employer panel will give feedback on interviews, resumes, and social media, as well as how to stand out from the pack and job searching in a virtual world. The free Employer Panel runs from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.; registration is required. To register, go to bit.ly/3DL2zzi.
The PA CareerLink Chester County Open House and Resource Fair runs from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on September 7, at 479 Thomas Jones Way, Suite 500, Exton. Tours of the PA CareerLink Chester County office will be offered during this time. Registration is not required for the Open House and Resource Fair, and there is no cost to attend.
