On April 5th, CVEDC and Creative Workforce Solutions hosted the annual Job Fair at the Barre Auditorium. This year we had 68 employers and service providers staffing tables, with approximately 650 job seekers attending. This represents an increase in vendors and a decrease in job seekers as compared to the 2016 event. It is our opinion that this reflects the need for businesses to find new employees at the same time that the available labor pool is shrinking. We will be collecting additional data from employers to measure the employment impact of the event in the coming month.

In summary, this event has become over time a valuable resource for employers and job seekers in the region. The collaboration between CVEDC and Creative Workforce Solutions in hosting the event, as well as the support of our sponsors, is a model of collaboration that has and will provide a continued benefit into the foreseeable future.
