Get ready to get hired at NIEFS employment workshop

NIEFS is hosting a spotlight event on employers that are hiring for multiple positions in the community

On Feb. 24, NIEFS is hosting a spotlight event on employers that are hiring for multiple positions in the community.

Traditionally, NIEFS spring hiring event has multiple employers with an overwhelming attendee response from the community.

Some employers are hiring while others attend for the opportunity to meet potential future employees even if an opening is not currently present.

This year NIEFS has identified six employers that are looking to hire for multiple positions. Participants of this event can expect that there are jobs and the employers are ready to hire.

Featured jobs include opportunities in tourism and hospitality, retail, social services and manufacturing. Watch the NIEFS channel 111 or visit www.niefs.net for an updated list of the employers attending and the positions they are hiring for.

NIEFS provides a wide variety of services that assist people who are looking for work and has developed a two-day workshop specifically tailored to prepare people for the positions featured at the hiring event.

The workshop, “Get Ready – Get Hired” runs Feb. 22-23 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at NIEFS. NIEFS also has a “coach” available on a daily basis who can assist clients target their resume and their approach to specific jobs and employers who will be at this hiring fair. NIEFS is hoping that by taking this approach applicants will have the opportunity to know what jobs are available, what employers are hiring, and to prepare accordingly.

It is their mission at NIEFS to assist unemployed people to find work or get the skills they need for employment.

In addition, we help employers find the right people, with the right skills at the right time. The Spotlight on Employers Hiring is their way of bringing the two together.
