‘Fall into Jobs’ Fair Set for September 11 & 13

The local unemployment rate might be at a 16-year low, but employers throughout St. Charles County are eagerly looking for full-time, part-time, permanent and temporary workers.

To help fill the need, the Missouri Job Center of St. Charles County has scheduled two special events for its Annual “Fall Into Jobs” Fair. Both are held at the Missouri Job Center, 212 Turner Boulevard in St. Peters.

Curbside Event: 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, September 11
Job-seekers simply drive by as Job Center staff hand out bags filled with help-wanted information.

Job Fair: 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday, September 13
Attendees bring their resume and are ready for on-site interviews.

“Pick a local business sector and they are hiring right now,” says Scott J. Drachnik, Executive Director of the Missouri Job Center of St. Charles County. “There are a lot of entry- and mid-level jobs available, but also jobs requiring specialized skills, training and education at mid- and higher levels. Our Annual ‘Fall Into Jobs’ Fair is the perfect time and place for job-seekers and employers to connect in St. Charles County.”

Drachnik encouraged interested job-seekers to visit the Job Center in advance of the events so they can have a free consultation with a Career Counselor to go over their resume, job search and interview skills. For those unable to come to the Center, Skype counseling is available.

Businesses interested in participating in the upcoming “Fall Into Jobs” Fair can contact Lori Myers at 636-255-6060, ext. 5260, or at lmyers@sccmo.org.  Booths at the fair are $15; companies participating in the curbside event must provide 300 flyers in advance.
