Chesapeake Bay Business Park job fair deemed a success
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.
