Get Your Job Here!

job fair.jpgThis will be a quick one today.  I’ve had one of the longest days in my very short career (so far) as the Vice President of Human Resources.  Today, I did my first job fair to recruit high quality talent to our agency.  It was a bit hit and I’m super excited to find jobs for some of the folks who chatted me up today.

In the days leading up to the event, I was interviewed by the local television station  (you can see it if you click the link) that sponsored the day: WPRI Eyewitness News in Rhode Island.  Rhode wpri logoIsland has the highest unemployment rate in the country, and the fact that a television station has stepped up to welcome over 100 employers and 3,000 people looking for jobs, to a day-long event–at no cost to anyone; well all I can say is…WOW!  We were very successful in finding potential new staff.

Today’s thank you goes out to the WPRI staff who organized the event, staffed the event, and the nice reporter who interviewed me!
