Happy New Year!
We’re always striving to be more accessible and transparent so that our members know what we’re up to and the community knows why we’re here. So in 2017, I’m setting a goal to write a blog post here in the Community Corner once a week. I’ll take a short break from what I’m doing and tell you about it. Our members have the ability to post too so if they know about something happening that they want to share, I hope they will. In the meantime, you get to hear from me. I’ll try to tell you about projects we’re working on, things we’re learning about, people we’ve met, etc.
Today I wanted to share with you that two of our members who work very closely together are holding a job fair on February 9th from 10am to 1pm. ValleyWorks Career Center is a fantastic resource for anyone looking to enter or re-enter the workforce, or hire new employees. They are located at Northern Essex Community College right in Haverhill. ValleyWorks is hosting this job fair at the college. I know many of our local businesses are hiring and a lot of people in town are looking for jobs. So, if you’re hiring you might want to look into getting an employer booth. If you’re job searching you should plan to attend.
Here is a link to the flyer with more details: http://www.valleyworks.cc/documents/FebruaryJF2017.pdf

The Chamber has also recently launched a Job Board, member businesses have unlimited access to post open positions and I hope the community will use it to find jobs. You can find the links under ‘Business Here’ on our website. I know right this very moment there is 1 full time and 1 part time job posted there.
