Charlotte Mecklenburg Library connects employers with job seekers

On Wednesday, March 20, 2019, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library’s Job Help Center hosted its semi-annual job fairfr the community. The turnout from both employers and job seekers was tremendous with more than 400 prospective employees attending, to meet with 39 employers who were on hand to collect resumes and set interviews. Traffic and interaction were non-stop for nearly the entire event. One success story included Mecklenburg County ABC who interviewed four prospective employees on the spot during the Job Fair.

David Sniffin, Leading on Opportunity Leader at the Job Help Center, said, “It’s exciting to see the enthusiasm and engagement between our employers and job seekers during the Job Help Center Job Fair at Main Library. This event is a successful, working example of how the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is contributing to the Leading on Opportunity initiative in our community by improving lives and building a stronger community.”

Among the companies in attendance were AAA Carolinas, Carowinds, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Snyder’s-Lance, Marriott City Center and many more. 

The Job Fair came after Job Readiness Week, where the Job Help Center offered classes and programs on resume writing, interviewing and other job-related topics.

Good luck in your job search and we hope to see you at our next job fair in the fall.
