PITTSFIELD, MA The Berkshire Chamber of Commerce is seeking employers to exhibit at the 2012 Berkshire Career Fair on Thursday, April 26 at Berkshire Hills Country Club in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. In these trying economic times, the Berkshire Career Fair has become more valuable than ever in uniting local employers with the Berkshire talent they need to succeed. The Berkshire Career Fair is open to the general public from 10:00 AM 4:00 PM and attendees are encouraged to bring copies of their resumes.
Last year, more than 40 companies participated, offering an array of job opportunities from entry level to high-level management positions. This year proves to deliver the same breadth of opportunity and the Berkshire Chamber is enthusiastic that employers and job-seekers alike will forge the valuable connections that will ultimately fill positions and enhance the strength of our local workforce.
"We have many quality employers returning to the Career Fair again this year, allowing job-seekers to see first-hand the exciting employment opportunities available in the region and giving them the opportunity to make valuable face-to-face connections with a variety of businesses. We look forward to another great Career Fair," commented Christine Hoyt, Director of Programs & Events for the Berkshire Chamber of Commerce.
Career Fair exhibitors may choose between six-foot and eight-foot tables, each with table skirting. Prices for Berkshire Chamber members are $99 for the six-foot table or $125 for the eight-foot table. Non-members prices are $150 for a six-foot table or $180 for the eight-foot table. For more information or to reserve a spot, please contact Christine Hoyt at (413) 499-4000 extension 26 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
