It’s not always easy for employers to find their next great employees. Similarly, it’s not often a smooth transition for job seekers to find that next place to ply their trades, whether its from a long break or a quick transition into a new place of employment. Luckily, the efforts of EmployLNK and numerous other area agencies continue to think of new ways and reach new audiences to pair employers with potential employees. One event in particular recently had a record turnout and continues to lead to positive outcomes.
