Grey County is working with a number of local partners to help connect employers and job hunters.
Four job fairs have been planned over the next month in Flesherton, Hanover, Owen Sound, and Meaford.
Registration is open for employers who want to reserve one of the booths, but Grey County warns space is limited and expected to fill quickly.
Grey County Economic Development Officer Jacinda Rudolph says the events are an excellent way for employers to put their business name out there and connect in person with candidates.
“The 2023 Regional Job Fairs committee is excited to host these events throughout the region to ensure accessibility for both employers and job seekers,” said Rudolph. “The regional job fairs attract a variety of diverse job seekers with different skills.”
The first Job Fair is scheduled for February 22 at Grey Highlands Secondary School in Flesherton, and the second goes February 28 at John Diefenbaker Senior School in Hanover.
Those will be followed by a job fair in Owen Sound at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre on March 1, and another March 2 in Meaford at the Georgian Bay Community School.
Employers can register for a booth online at grey.ca/job-fair. And anyone who needs to brush up on their resume writing or interview skills can contact YMCA Employment Services by calling 519-371-9222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The Grey County Regional Job Fairs are made possible through collaboration with local partners including County of Grey, YMCA of Owen Sound, Four County Labour Market Planning Board, Georgian College, City of Owen Sound, Town of Hanover, Municipality of Meaford, Meaford Chamber of Commerce, South Grey Chamber and Employment Ontario,” according to Grey County.
