St. Charles County, Missouri - The local unemployment rate might be at its lowest point in years, but employers throughout St. Charles County are eagerly looking for full-time and part-time workers for summer 2016.
To help fill the need, the Missouri Job Center of St. Charles County has scheduled two special events for their Second Annual Summer Hiring Blitz 2016.
First, a “Curb-Side Event” will be held from 2 to 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 26, at the Missouri Job Center, 212 Turner Blvd. in St. Peters. Job-seekers can simply drive by as staff hand out bags filled with help-wanted information from approximately 30 local employers.
Then, a “Summer Hiring Job Fair” will be held from 4 to 6:30 p.m., Thursday, April 28, with 30 or more employers at the new Courtyard Marriott Hotel overlooking I-70 at 4341 Veterans Memorial Parkway in St. Peters.
“We hold this popular event every year, right before the summer months and before the winter holidays,” said Scott Drachnik, executive director of the Missouri Job Center of St. Charles County. “There is always a strong response from job-seekers and local businesses. Retail stores, restaurants, manufacturers, healthcare providers, IT companies, local governments and more are all hiring throughout St. Charles County right now. This is a great time to find a summer job or start a new career.”
Businesses interested in participating in the upcoming Hiring Blitz are encouraged to contact Lori Myers at 636-255-6060, ext. 5260, or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no fee to have a booth at the job fair, but companies participating in the curb-side event must provide 300 flyers in advance.
