Over 65 Professional Job Openings Locally
Martinsville, VA – The annual Home for Holidays virtual job fair is being held now through January 15th at www.homeforholidaysjobfair.com. Currently, there are over 65 available positions listed on the website, including college faculty members, healthcare providers, IT support, marketing, and more. The intent of this job fair is to showcase professional employment opportunities for people that are “home for the holidays” in hopes that they may return to our area to work.
“This is a great opportunity for individuals interested in returning to this area to find professional employment,” states Laura Buchanan, the Business Services Manager for the Martinsville-Henry County Chamber of Commerce. She recently returned to the area to accept this position and said “I am very happy to be working in the Martinsville-Henry County area again and I hope others will be able to return as well through this job fair.”
The virtual job fair also provides a good opportunity for local employers to find qualified candidates for their organizations. “Posting our positions was easy and we have already started receiving resumes of viable candidates” states Guy Stanley, Human Resources Director with The Lester Group.
Local employers with professional job openings should contact Laura Buchanan at firstname.lastname@example.org to have their position posted as soon as possible.
Job seekers can view available positions by visiting www.homefortheholidaysjobfair.com. Qualified candidates should submit a cover letter and resume through the website. Individuals are encouraged to visit the website periodically to check for new postings by employers.
The job fair is coordinated by the Martinsville Henry County Chamber of Commerce, a business organization with over 600 members in the Martinsville-Henry County region, in conjunction with the West Piedmont Workforce Investment Board (WPWIB). The WPWIB funds and monitors the region’s five Virginia Workforce Centers and numerous employment services and training programs for employers, jobseekers and youth.
The Chamber and WPWIB are working collaboratively on this project along with others to assist employers in finding the talent they need to be successful.
