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 now and again in the Community Corner. Our members have the ability to post as well, so if you’re a member and you have something to share, let us know. 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.
We recently launched a new Job Board, where member businesses have unlimited access to post open positions. We want this Job Board to become a resource for employers and employees to connect with each other. I hope the community will use it to find jobs!
Continuing with the theme of jobs, 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. 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.
