Workforce Centers to Hold Virtual Hiring Event for Ski Season Jobs
Winter Virtual Job Fair offers hundreds of job opportunities for ski season
Workforce Centers in Leadville, Glenwood Springs, Edwards, Granby, Frisco and Steamboat Springs are teaming up to host a Winter Virtual Job Fair, a 22 day, around-the-clock hiring event that will be used to fill hundreds of jobs at ski resorts across Colorado’s high country, including Vail Resorts, Steamboat Mountain, Aspen Snowmass, Copper Mountain, Loveland Ski Mountain, Granby Ranch, Winter Park and A-Basin.
The Department of Labor and Employment’s virtual job fair platform will be used to stage the event that will run from August 25 through September 15. Job seekers need to simply log in or register at www.connectingcolorado.com to gain entry.
Once inside the virtual event, they can peruse a wide variety of job opportunities in hospitality, hotel and food service, ski operations and customer service. Participants will also be able to attend workshops to help them write a strong résumé and build their job seeking and interviewing skills.
“We’re excited to be able to provide this virtual job fair to these great employers,” says Department of Labor and Employment Executive Director Ellen Golombek. “They offer full and part-time work, excellent benefits, competitive salaries and career growth opportunities.”
And because the job opportunities cover a wide geographic region, an online or “virtual” hiring event is the best way to go, she says. “Job seekers can visit this virtual fair from any location with a web connection and at any time.”
The Department of Labor and Employment and its network of Workforce Centers offer a range of services to job seekers and Colorado employers, all at no charge. For job seekers interested in learning more about this virtual job fair or for employers interested in having a similar event staged to meet their staffing needs, contact your nearest Workforce Center.
