December 04, 2013ROSWELL, Ga. For area companies with jobs to fill, the Roswell United Methodist Church may just have the answer with its Job Networking Mini-Job Fair Monday, Dec. 9.
"Do you have jobs that need qualified workers? You're invited! Just say, 'I'm in.' It's that easy," said Rhonda McDonald at RUMC Job Networking. "There is still room to join us and find a great employee."
The RUMC Job Networking Mini-Job Fair is sponsored by Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club of Roswell.
"There's no booth. No cost. No preparation. All you have to do is bring jobs," said McDonald. "Success stories sent to us from employers have confirmed this process is working."
Decision makers should arrive no later than 7:30 p.m. for the employers' quick meeting.
Shortly afterward, employers get to announce their jobs to the 300-plus job seekers in attendance and then meet in private rooms with the interested candidates.
"It's over by 9 p.m., and employers leave with resumes in hand. That's the process in a nutshell," said McDonald.
"We would also welcome and encourage you to join us for dinner at 5:45 p.m. to hear our dinner speaker and mingle with job seekers," she said.
There is no cost to employers for the event. However, RUMC appreciates donations to the Job Networking Ministry. This program has grown exponentially and expenses have greatly increased.
Dinner for the job seekers, volunteers and employers cost approximately $1,000 per evening. There are, of course, additional costs. Every penny of every contribution they get goes into a special account used for this program only.
"We believe this program is having an amazing impact in the community," said McDonald. "The Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce, Roswell Business Alliance and the Rotary Club of Roswell support us with their time, money and introductions to employers and job seekers."
