Job fair planned for Tuesday morning at NECC

ValleyWorks Career Center will host a Job fair for all job seekers, with an emphasis on veterans on Tuesday, Nov. 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Hartleb Technology Center on the Haverhill campus of Northern Essex Community College, 100 Elliott St.

More than 25 employers are expected to participate in this event. Joanne Goldstein, secretary of labor and workforce development, will speak about the governor’s proclamation in observance of Veteran’s Day; the sacrifice of our veterans to defend our country and the abundance of talent and leadership ability veterans bring to the workplace. Afterwards, Goldstein will meet with veterans and other job seekers and employers.

All job seekers are welcome. Veterans will have an opportunity to connect with area employers. Employers would like to speak with veterans about the strong background developed and strengthened in demanding environments and conditions that their civilian counterparts rarely encounter.

Event organizers say first impressions matter, and suggest attendees practice their 30-second introductions, dress neatly and have a clean appearance, bring multiple copies of their resumes and come prepared to complete job applications. Membership or pre-registration is not required. Career Center members are asked to bring their membership information for quicker entrance. The site is accessible by MVRTA Bus. For a bus schedule visit www.mvrta.com. Watch for updated employer listing and event details at www.valleyworks.cc. Employers interested in participating in this event are asked to call 978-722-7000.
