People in the Charlotte area who are looking for work or a change in their career will have the opportunity to speak to prospective employers thanks to a mini job fair at Sugar Creek Library, February 14.
The last two job fairs in this series which took place on February 15 and March 12 of 2018, brought in more than 80 attendees to meet with local companies, most leaving the fair with leads or scheduled interviews.
Sugar Creek Library is one of three Charlotte Mecklenburg Library locations that support career services, and serves as an NC Works career site. The library offers resume and job search assistance, and has 10 designated workforce computers, which are utilized by more than 600 customers each month.
Mini job fairs provide job seekers with an opportunity to connect with employers in the community in a welcoming environment.
The next mini job fair will take place Thursday, February 14 from 1-3 p.m. in Sugar Creek Library's community room. The next job fair will be scheduled in the Fall of 2019.
Sugar Creek Library’s free parking and easy access make it an ideal spot for these fairs. And, according to Charlotte Works, unemployment in the Sugar Creek area is currently at 27.6%.
