CHIEFLAND, Fla. (Sept. 25, 2019) – CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion and CareerSource Florida Crown have teamed up to hold a fall career fair on Thursday, Oct. 17 for those looking for work in Levy and Gilchrist counties.
The career fair takes place from 3:30-6 p.m. at the College of Central Florida’s Levy Campus, 15390 NW Hwy 19, between Chiefland and Fanning Springs. It is free and open to all general job seekers, including students and recent graduates.
Prior to attending, job seekers should complete a full registration, or update an existing registration, at EmployFlorida.com. Participants are encouraged to dress professionally, bring printed copies of a current resume and be prepared to discuss skills and qualifications with hiring managers.
Cindy LeCouris, manager of CareerSource CLM’s Levy County career center, said the career fair provides “fast, efficient and effective” recruiting options for businesses with jobs to fill and for candidates who want to fill them.
“Teaming up with our counterparts in the Florida Crown workforce region offers lots of opportunities for the broadest array of area candidates and businesses,” she said. “It provides businesses in both counties the ability to recruit candidates who don’t mind crossing the county line, and lets candidates know what might be available to them within an easy commute.”
LeCouris said that, to date, participating businesses include ANCORP, Ayers Health and Rehabilitation Center, Dollar General, Paradox Intellectual Properties, and Suwannee Valley Feeds and Alliance Dairy Group. Representatives from CareerSource CLM and the workforce region’s young adult services provider, Eckerd Connects Workforce Development, will also be on hand.
Free career fair preparation assistance is available at all CareerSource CLM career centers, including the Levy County center at 2175 NW 11th Dr., in Chiefland.
