The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

About 750 peo­ple met 68 em­ploy­ers at the 7th edi­tion of the Job Fair held in Hawkes­bury and Rock­land re­cently.

“The over­all num­ber of vis­i­tors at the event is cer­tainly a re­flec­tion of the trend in our cur­rent mar­ket. How­ever, with more than 1,150 po­si­tions avail­able, we had hoped to al­le­vi­ate this trend,” said An­dré Roy, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Em­ploy­ment Ser­vices Cen­tre, which staged the event.

“Em­ploy­ers men­tioned hav­ing found can­di­dates for very spe­cific po­si­tions, which de­notes the high qual­ity of vis­i­tors to the fair. And, again this year, sev­eral job seek­ers were hired on the spot, and we are con­fi­dent that many oth­ers will be in the com­ing weeks,” added Mr. Roy.
