A big job fair was held in Haynes Garden Apartments activity room today. It all came together thanks to a collaborative effort between Haynes Garden Apartments and Hoshana Management Group.
More than 15 businesses in various fields like fast food, light industrial, tourism and transportation participated. They were looking to fill positions in their companies for 2013.
Hoshana Management Group Director of Events Malikah Hylton said, “the success you see today took a great deal of effort and there is nothing better than to see hard work pay off. There are colleges here, staffing companies, Assurance Wireless is here. There are just a huge diverse group of people participating.”
Hundreds of people attended the event and Hylton noted that there were plenty of great conversations between employers and the applicants.
“6 people were hired on the spot today, and there are several second and first time interviews scheduled. Employers are engaging in some really good conversations to identify what the person wants and if that person is a good fit. Employers are taking names and they are going to follow up with people. There are applications being filled out in which employers are going to make a connection later. I’d say this fair was a huge success”
