As Colorado’s mountain towns continue their economic recovery in the wake of the pandemic, businesses need workers now more than ever and those looking for work have never had so many options. Those seeking work or a new profession are encouraged to attend a Virtual Mountain Town Winter Job Fair on Oct. 14. There, they will be able to connect with employers who are hiring; mountain town employers in tourism-related industries will also benefit from participating, as they’ll be able to connect directly with the skilled talent they need to grow.
Employers from each major ski community will be represented offering a variety of full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions ahead of the winter recreation season.
There will be a training session for employers on October 12 to learn best practices for using the Premier Virtual platform. Employers can register here.
All attendees are encouraged to upload their resumes to Connecting Colorado when creating their profiles. Resumes must be uploaded in .pdf format to the event. For those who want to include the virtual job fair as a work search activity, they must be registered in Connecting Colorado.
