The 6th Annual Central Vermont Job Fair on April 1st at the Barre City Auditorium was a great success. There were 60 vendors in attendance to provide information about their businesses or organizations to job seekers. Over 800 people looking for jobs came through and networked with the businesses and other presenters. They came from all over Vermont.
Preliminary reports indicate that several jobless people were hired at this fair, and several took applications to complete.
Coming together to sponsor this annual job fair were the Workforce Development Board of Central Vermont, Central VT Economic Development Corp., VABIR, the Northfield Savings Bank, the Vermont Dept. of Labor, the VT Agency of Human Services, and Green Mountain United Way.
GMUW is pleased to participate in helping our local people obtain good-paying jobs that will bring people to long-lasting financial stability. As part of its Income initiative, GMUW helped to promote the job fair.
