Carrollton Public Library Partners with Metrocrest Services to Host Job Fair

Post Date:01/17/2018 4:38 PM

Calling all employers. The Carrollton Public Library and Metrocrest Services have partnered to host the first Metrocrest Community Job Fair on Monday, May 7 from 12-4 p.m. at Josey Ranch Lake Library (1700 Keller Springs Road).

This event will host 20 local employers to promote career opportunities for local job seekers. The City of Carrollton and Metrocrest Services hope to Expand the Vision of community resources available to citizens by bringing together employee and employer, and by doing so, strengthen the community from within to make Carrollton a place where people can live, work, and play.

“The Carrollton Public Library and Metrocrest Services are both committed to providing resources that enhance community workforce development,” Rachel Young, Josey Ranch Lake Library Branch Manager, said. “With this in mind, we’re excited to host a job fair that will literally bring together local employers and local candidates.”

Clarice Mastin, Metrocrest Services Workforce Development Specialist, said events such as the Metrocrest Community Job Fair are “an essential part of their efforts to provide opportunities and community resources that foster independence and self-sufficiency.”

Businesses with a wide range of available positions to meet varying levels of skills and interests in the community are invited to participate free of charge. The first hour of the job fair will be dedicated to pre-registered job seekers for a more personalized interaction with employers. The remaining three hours of the event will be an open-call job fair. Computer stations will be available for participants to apply online during the fair. Additionally, a special area will be designated for onsite interviews.

“We are recruiting small to medium sized businesses from a variety of sectors with current job openings, so the local applicant pool has an opportunity to be interviewed and potentially hired within a short turn-around time,” Young said.

If your organization wishes to participate, complete a registration form here and return it via email or fax to Tanisha Williams at twilliams@metrocrestservices.org or Clarice Mastin at cmastin@metrocrestservices.org. Registration forms are due by 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 15. Your registration is not complete until you receive confirmation from Metrocrest Services or the Carrollton Public Library.
