RochesterWorks! in collaboration with the NYS Department of Labor, cordially invite you to participate in the RochesterWorks! 1st Annual Career Conference: Surviving Job Loss in a Changing Economy. This exciting event will take place on November 10th at the Double Tree Hotel, 1111 Jefferson Road, Rochester, New York, from 8:00am– 4:00pm. This is not a traditional job fair but a career conference designed to bring together job seekers, businesses with hiring needs, educational organizations and community agencies.
Career workshops will be conducted for job seekers throughout the day. These workshops will be on a variety of pertinent topics. When not attending a workshop, they will be able to visit the various tables and learn about job openings, how to advance their education or which community agencies can assist them during their period of unemployment. By participating in this first of its kind event, you get the opportunity to showcase your organization, fill your job openings and work together with the community to help transition individuals back to work. The job seeker turnout is expected to be huge. Since space is limited you are encouraged to register as soon as you can.
Cost of the Career Conference is $50 (this event is free for job seekers). This includes lunch (for 2 representatives), one table, 2 chairs, and parking. Deadline for registering is October 2nd, 2009.
Upon selection of exhibitors, we will send confirmation and a detailed overview of the event specifics. To register, click here. For questions about the event, please contact Giannina Naylon at 585-262-7521 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
