The Macon County NCWorks Career Center will hold a Drive-Through Job & Resource Fair from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Friday, June 12, at the Macon County Public Library.
According to NCWorks career center manager, Paula Alter, “A traditional job fair had previously been scheduled for June 19 at the library but Covid-19 changed those plans. We know our area employers want and need to connect with job seekers and vice versa. This type of event will still provide that connection in a no-contact way.”
Participants will enter the library from Siler Road and drive through the parking lot to the outdoor book drop-off kiosk area opposite the front entrance, roll down the driver’s side window and take a bag from staff wearing a mask and gloves. The bag will contain information from area employers that are hiring. In addition, attendees will also be offered a bag of resource information from multiple area organizations.
“The dual focus of this event will employ the mantra from last December’s Community Resource Fair: Be connected. Feel empowered. Get informed. Leave with hope.” Alter says she and her staff look forward to putting a new twist on their previously successful events. “There’s also an unsubstantiated rumor that a local T-Rex may make a cameo appearance but that remains unconfirmed.”
Although the career center remains closed to public access at this time, additional information on the drive-through fair or NCWorks Career Center services may be obtained by calling 828-369-9534 and entering your zip code, sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting www.ncworks.gov.
