Park City Chamber/Bureau job fair returns
It’s that time of year again. With winter approaching, ski resorts, hotels and restaurants in town are looking for workers to ensure ski season runs smoothly.
That means people hoping to snag a winter job are in luck. To find one, they can start at the Park City Chamber/Bureau and Department of Workforce Services’ annual job fair, which is set for Tuesday, Oct. 13, at the Park City Marriott. The event will run from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Craig McCarthy, vice president of member services for the Chamber/Bureau, said about 30 local employers, including the two ski resorts will be present. Typically, 150 to 200 prospective employees show up, depending on the economy.
McCarthy said the job fair is an event employers look forward to each year. There is always high demand for winter workers, so having access to up to 200 prospective employees is an advantage.
"They find this event very useful," he said. " virtue of the fact that we can put together an event of this size and publicize it to a pretty wide audience, particularly with the Department of Workforce Services doing publicity through their channels too."
And as far as job seekers, McCarthy said "it’s probably the best kind of environment you can go to." He added that job seekers should bring resumes and dress well.
"You’ve got up to 30 employers all seeking employees," he said. "And everyone is looking for different types of people, so you can really find something that’s going to be a good fit for you with your skill set, your desire and what you’d like to do. I think it’s just a great opportunity for job seekers to really investigate what the possibilities are."

The Christian Center of Park City had a makeover last year, and its boutique felt it was time for one, too.
