Event Recap: CWCC Job Fair

Yesterday, the Colorado Women’s Chamber hosted its first Job Fair with 23 member businesses.  Having never hosted a job fair before and receiving inches of fresh morning snow, we did not know exactly what to expect.  However, with an estimated crowd between 400-600 people, many of whom stayed between 30 minutes and an hour to talk to potential employers, we consider the event a huge success.  We really wanted to get people face to face to meet with employers, because that is how real job connections happen.  The comments we received from vendors and job seekers alike has been very positive. 

We want to thank everyone who braved the cold and snow and attended the job fair.

We also want to give special thanks to the media that covered the event before it took place as well as the media that attended the event.  CBS 4 and the Rocky Mountain News gave us great coverage.  Here are links to the articles and videos:
