Housekeeping

Posted by Schevus on March 18, 2009

My apologies for the delayed posting. Life has been hectic as of late – my wife and I just bought a house! I hope to be back to normal posting soon. Here are some miscellaneous tidbits:

– Time is running out to support education with a comment. I must say, I have been pretty disappointed to have zero participants thus far. Take a moment a leave a comment for a good cause!

– I have volunteered to create a website for Tri-BALL-Athon 2009. If anyone is good with graphic design and would be interested in helping out please let me know! It seems like we are always in need of graphic design help and our current resources are overtaxed and unreliable. Anyone with working knowledge of PHP is also welcome to assist.

– We will be serving a lasagna dinner at Shalom House this Saturday as part of our service commitment for the Shalom Outreach Society. If anyone is interested in seeing the shelter or helping out with dinner, leave a comment and I can get you more information.

– I know it is late notice (sorry I just found out today), but there is a job fair currently underway that runs until 2:00 PM today at the St. Ann Community Center. You can find more detailed information here.

I hope all is well with everyone!

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.
