As pandemic unemployment benefits start coming to an end, and life continues to be uncertain for so many in our community, we have heard from hundreds of you who are trying to make ends meet amid unemployment.
And while we have worked hard to tell your stories, we wanted to do more for our community than just highlight the problem.
That is why we partnered with Cincinnati Works to bring you Final Fridays with Cincinnati Works, a job fair to help you get back to work.
Cincinnati Works' mission is to eliminate poverty in Cincinnati by assisting people through advancing economic self-sufficiency through employment.
Our next event will take place Friday, July 30, 2021, from 9 a.m to 11 a.m.
Companies interviewing with potential employees this month are:
- Springdale packaging firm ProAmpac.
- Cleaning services company ABM (which cleans Amazon's local warehouses).
- Cincy Gutter Boys, which installs, repairs, and cleans gutters.
Here's how to sign up for Final Fridays:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following required information:
- First and last name
- Phone number
- Email address
- Two employers you are interested in
Sign-ups will close on Wednesday, July 28, at 11:59 p.m., so make sure to get your email in by then.
If you are selected, we will get in touch with you to let you know where and when to go.
If you are not selected, but you provided a resume, we will pass it along to the employers you wanted to talk to. We will also provide information about services at Cincinnati Works and ways the organization can help you with getting on your feet.
Here are some tips to help prepare you for the virtual event, including making sure you have a Zoom account set up and ready to go.
The employers who are participating in Virtual Final Fridays are established partners of Cincinnati Works, demonstrating a commitment to the mission of the organization to end poverty through employment. They appreciate the challenges their frontline employees face (on the job and at home) and they support their employees accordingly.
