QA County to host job op­por­tu­ni­ties event

Record Observer - - News -

STEVENSVILLE — The Queen Anne’s County Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment De­part­ment is part­ner­ing with KRM Devel­op­ment Inc. to host a job op­por­tu­ni­ties event at the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Busi­ness Park on Wed­nes­day, Nov. 16.

This event will draw at­ten­tion to the many job op­por­tu­ni­ties now avail­able for Queen Anne’s County and other Shore res­i­dents who cur­rently com­mute across the bridge for em­ploy­ment.

The one-day event will fea­ture em­ploy­ers at the busi­ness park dis­play­ing “yard signs” in­di­cat­ing their avail­abil­ity for hir­ing and in­ter­view­ing can­di­dates from 2 to 5 p.m. within the park. In ad­di­tion, from 5 to 7 p.m., lo­cal Amer­i­can Job Cen­ter work­force “sur­ro­gates” will be on hand to dis­cuss the avail­able open­ings, dis­trib­ute po­si­tion de­scrip­tions and an­swer ques­tions for those who are not able to at­tend dur­ing the af­ter­noon time­frame. All are welcome to this free event.

“This is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to demon­strate that there are com­pet­i­tive jobs avail­able right here in the Kent Is­land area,” said Jean Fabi with Queen Anne’s Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment. “Why com­mute when you can avoid the time, traf­fic and ten­sion by find­ing a great job match here in your neigh­bor­hood?”

There are more than 80 busi­nesses in the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Busi­ness Park, and through a re­cent sur vey, as many job open­ings in the next three to six months.

This event is also sup­ported through staff from the Amer­i­can Job Cen­ter net­work of the five-county area through the Up­per Shore Work­force In­vest­ment Board, Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege, and the lo­cal Cham­ber of Com­merce. On­go­ing Amer­i­can Job Cen­ter com­mit­ment to as­sist both em­ploy­ers and job seek­ers is avail­able on­line via the Mary­land Work­force Ex­change at www.mwe­jobs. com.
