The Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that its upcoming 10th Annual Job Fair will be taking place on April 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Forest Public Library.
Last year, we had around 30 exhibitors representing businesses in our region–this year we hope to have even more! Some of our 2023 exhibitors include Croft Senior Services, Bedford Weaving, Peaks of Otter Restaurant and Lodge, Coleman-Adams Construction, Star City Communications, Blue Ridge Overland Gear, Bedford County, and Wooldridge Heating, Air, and Electrical.
The job fair is free for job seekers, and a variety of full-time, part-time, and seasonal jobs will be available. In addition to being open to the public, the Chamber is working with Bedford County Public Schools to bring high school seniors to the event.
We are excited to be shaking things up for the 10th Annual Job Fair by expanding and changing some of our usual offerings. Thanks to the Chamber’s partnership with several local professionals, we will be offering free workforce development workshops to the public, with topics ranging from achieving an authentic job fit to dressing for success to mastering the interview. Radio434 and TheMIKEShow will be in attendance to conduct “man-on-the-street” interviews with businesses, job seekers, and sponsors. There will also be free headshots, giveaways, and lunch for purchase on site, courtesy of Munsey’s Smoke Shack.
Whether you’re hiring, searching for a job, seeking to change careers, or simply wanting to make connections with area professionals, the 10th Annual Job Fair is the one-stop-shop for you. Put on your blazer and join us!
Exhibitor registration will be open through March 27.
