“If you’re an employer who wants to hire talented, dedicated, patriotic, skilled, tireless, energetic workers, look to AmeriCorps…Citizens who perform national service are special. You want them on your team.” -President Obama
You are invited to attend a Career Fair for AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA members on Friday July 8, 2016 from 1:15 to 2:30 p.m. in the Hollingsworth Conference Room, United Way of Greenville, 105 Edinburgh Court, Greenville, SC.
Several of our AmeriCorps and VISTA members will be finishing their year of service in the next few months (AmeriCorps on July 30 and VISTAs on August 19) and are looking for opportunities to put the skills and experience they've gained into action in the workplace.
We feel that it is important to retain this pool of skilled, dedicated individuals in the Upstate community and thus are hosting this event to connect them with agencies such as yours that recognize the unique qualities national service members possess: leadership, teamwork, flexibility, problem-solving, and innovation to name a few.
We understand that not all of the organizations we are inviting have job openings at the moment, but we suggest that you attend to inform the members about your organization and provide them with networking contacts.
We are keeping the format rather simple:
- A brief profile of your organization and current employment opportunities will be listed in the program
- Each organization’s representative will speak for two-three minutes about the organization’s mission and description of job opening (if applicable) at the beginning of the program
- Then the organization representatives and AmeriCorps/VISTA members will be free to mingle and swap business cards.
Light refreshments will be provided. There is no registration fee to participate.
