Record Observer - - News -

STEVENSVILLE — The Job Op­por­tu­ni­ties Event at Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Busi­ness Park Nov. 16 was a suc­cess with more than 80 job seek­ers at­tend­ing.

Queen Anne’s County Depart­ment of Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment part­nered with KRM De­vel­op­ment, Inc. to host the free event which drew at­ten­tion to the many job op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able in not only in the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Busi­ness Park, but also in Queen Anne’s County.

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

Fabi said there are more than 80 busi­nesses in the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Busi­ness Park, and through a re­cent sur­vey, there will be at least 80 job open­ings in the next three to six month time frame.

The one-day event fea­tured ten em­ploy­ers, in­clud­ing Fed­eral Re­sources, PRS Guitar, and NRL & As­so­ci­ates, dis­play­ing “yard signs” in­di­cat­ing their avail­abil­ity for hir­ing and in­ter view­ing.

The event was also sup­ported with staff from the Amer­i­can Job Cen­ter network of the five-county area through the Up­per Shore Work­force In­vest­ment Board, Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege, Depart­ment of La­bor, Li­cens­ing and Reg­u­la­tion.

Fabi said on-go­ing Amer­i­can Job Cen­ter com­mit­ment to as­sist both em­ploy­ers and job seek­ers is avail­able on­line via the Mary­land Work­force Ex­change MWE. Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion can be found at www.mwe­jobs.com.
