Jobs Fair on September 1st... could you help?

Watford - Jobs Fair - Banqueting Suite Watford
The Watford Jobs fair which was initiated by +Richard Harrington (local MP) is being held once again at the Banqueting rooms in the high street (near the overpass) on the 1st September. In what has become an annual event in the town diary it provides a fabulous opportunity for local people to connect directly with potential employers in the area and vice versa.

For more information about the Jobs Fair please take a look at the website here.

Can you help?

There are a number of ways that you might be able to participate

  1. If you run a business and are looking for people why not exhibit there (it's free, visit the website above for further details)
  2. If you are looking for work come along and meet other people who may have job opportunities or at least make some new connections, or just get some new ideas
  3. The Job Centre will be there and are looking for volunteers to do Mock Interviews and / or help with CV writing throughout the day

Job Centre volunteering

Hema Pandya our local Watford based BITC Connector (Business in the community) is working with the Job Centre and looking for a number of volunteers from businesses to support them on the Friday 1st September at the Jobs Fair.

They would like volunteers to carry out mock interviews or provide CV advice to individuals attending the event that are looking for employment. Not only is it a great opportunity to support local people either get into work or seek new employment, its a fantastic opportunity for employees to develop coaching and interviewing skills.

The Jobs Fair runs from 10am to 4pm and will have over 60 employers exhibiting. Last year over 4,000 people attended. The mock interviews and CV advice sessions were hugely popular last year and we know they are going to be well received this year. As such, we would need volunteers to commit to at least three hours of their time or ideally the full day. CV coaching sessions are approximately half an hour long, and mock interviews run for around 45 minutes.
