St. Louis Area Job Fair

Posted by Schevus on March 6, 2009

According to the United Way, “at the end of 2008 more than 108,000 people were unemployed in the St. Louis Metro Region.” Wow!

There will be a Job Fair held by the Partnership for the New Workforce on Thursday, 26 March. The event will run from 1 – 4 PM and will be at the following location:

The MET Center
6347 Plymouth Avenue
Wellston, MO 63133

The purpose of the job fair is expressed in the United Way press release:

The Partnership for the New Workforce (Partnership) is a collaboration of area employers, and employment and training service providers whose primary goal is to bring together trained and work ready job seekers with employers who need new workers. The goal of the partnership is to support employers and employees in ways that encourage retention and advancement in the workplace. The Partnership targets the employment and career development needs of first time job seekers as well as others who are reentering the job market, including older workers, ex-offenders, empty nesters and individuals with disabilities.

If you have lost your job because of the economy (or for any reason), it is important to be extremely proactive in attempting to regain employment. With so many people scrambling for jobs, you must do everything you can to stand out from the crowd and get noticed by potential employers. If you need more information about the job fair, you can contact the United Way at 314-539-4072.

Much thanks to Carrie Zukoski from the United Way for passing along this information.
