KRVC Job Mixer Event – A Community Success!
KRVC’s Job Mixer Event on 9/29/16 was a terrific community event and highlighted the need in our area for a networking forum for local job seekers and employers. Having reached out to residents, businesses and nonprofits in the Kingsbridge, Riverdale and Van Corlandt Village communities, KRVC hosted a well-attended event with around 50 people looking for employment and over 20 jobs posted from area businesses and nonprofits. Additionally, a number of representatives from local businesses and nonprofits attended the evening to meet and talk with job seekers and each other.
A wide range of people seeking part time and full time employment attended the event – people of all ages, backgrounds, from various neighborhoods, with high school diplomas to advanced degrees. Event attendees expressed their gratitude for the opportunity to present themselves and to have a chance to meet potential employers. Additionally, businesses and nonprofits from our local areas were positive in their feedback about the opportunity the evening afforded them to reach out to the community.
KRVC looks forward to hosting more Job Mixer Events in the future and to offering a series of Resume Writing Workshops. The first Resume Writing Workshop will be held on Tuesday October 18th at 7pm at KRVC’s office at 505 West 236th Street.
