Career Connectors Connects Job Seekers with Hiring Companies
Career Connectors Launches Monthly West Valley Event for Job Seekers
Glendale, AZ (October 3, 2017) – This year marks the start of Career Connectors’ presence in the West Valley with our first monthly event in Glendale for those who are unemployed or underemployed. The event will be held on October 19 9AM – noon at Calvary Community Church, located at 6060 West Bell Road, Glendale, AZ 85308.
Career Connectors is honored that Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers will be on hand to kick off this inaugural event, along with representatives from the Economic Development departments of Avondale, Glendale, Peoria and WESTMARC. Bridgett McGowen-Hawkins will be the keynote speaker. The following companies will present after Bridgett’s presentation: Staff Logic, Arizona Department of Health Services, New Horizons Learning Center and Goodwill of Central & Northern Arizona.
WESTMARC and Career Connectors hosted Healthcare Career Expos in April (Peoria) and September (Avondale). However, the Expos are separate and different events from the monthly events planned that will mirror the events currently held in Gilbert, Scottsdale, and Phoenix. Career Connectors will meet at the Glendale location Oct 19 and Nov 16, skip December, then meet the 3rd Thursdays starting in January.
Career Connectors is different than other career events. Our events aren’t like the job fairs or networking events hosted by other organizations. Our focus is on connecting job seekers with hiring companies, while also guiding them to the many educational opportunities available to them. We also offer many free resources so attendees land into the career of their dreams.
Career Connectors’ mission is to connect professionals in career transition to hiring companies and quality resources. As Arizona’s fastest growing job seeker program, the organization hosts no-cost job seeker events in Chandler/Gilbert, Phoenix, and North Scottsdale. At each event, Career Connectors showcases hiring companies and offers free services that include educational opportunities, DISC assessments, resume review, LinkedIn, professional business portraits, networking tips, interview coaching, and one-on-one face time with hiring companies. Founded by Jessica Pierce in 2009, the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization has served more than 20,000 attendees and worked with over 300 hiring companies. For more information, visit CareerConnectors.org, or call 480-442-5806.
“Calvary is thrilled to partner with Career Connectors to encourage and provide resources to those who are seeking a future and a hope. These events should not only help one identify their skills and qualifications, but also connect them with employers who are currently looking to hire,” states Calvary Pastor Mark Martin.
Jessica Pierce, Executive Director of Career Connectors, concludes, “We are proud and excited to have a viable presence across the Valley and that we are able to offer unique opportunities to those seeking employment.”
Job seekers attending each Career Connectors event can ask questions and make immediate connections with potential employers.
