The workforce center has three options for these kinds of events:
Hiring Event (Singular Employer)
A single employer schedules an event with the workforce center. The employer can use either the Pete Mirelez Human Services Center location, a virtual (zoom) platform, or an outside venue coordinated with the workforce center and employer. The available jobs must be posted in www.connectingcolorado.com and employers are encouraged to advertise the event using their available marketing tools. The workforce center will email the event to job seekers in our database to recruit them to the event. The event will also be advertised using county communication tools and community partner distribution lists. The employer has the option of conducting a standardized orientation session to many job seekers and then breaking off for individual interviews and/or discussions. These events are usually shorter and length and attract job seekers who are targeted that employer, occupation, or location for work.
Job Fair (Multi-Industry)
The workforce center schedules these events at regular intervals. Employers who wish to participate must post job in Connecting Colorado and are encouraged to market the event using their website or marketing departments. The workforce center will email the event to job seekers in our database to recruit them to the event. The event will also be advertised using county communication tools and community partner distribution lists. The event is held at either at the Pete Mirelez Human Service Center or if it is a virtual event, it will be online using the Premier Virtual Job Fair platform. The venue can accommodate up to 30 employers at each event. This style is great for in-person networking and finding job seekers who are exploring many options.
Job Fair (Single Industry/Cross Regional)
When a specific industry is having similar workforce issues these job fairs are conducted in collaboration with area sector partnerships and other metro area workforce regions. They occur less frequently and are traditional larger in size. The employers share an industry but may not share specific job titles. The locations vary based on available space and appropriateness of the event. Employers are encouraged to advertise the event using their available marketing tools. Multiple workforce regions will market the event to job seekers who are seeking career pathways in the selected industry. This will bring a larger candidate pool to the event and greater exposure for employers. These events may also be virtual.
