Chamber/Bureau to host annual Park City Job Fair
The annual Park City Job Fair will take place at The Yarrow Hotel on Nov. 1 from 3 to 7 p.m.
As of noon on Monday, 46 businesses had signed up to host a booth at the free event, but more are expected, said Kristin Carpenter, director of member services for the Park City Chamber/Bureau. Chamber/Bureau members can purchase a booth space for $50 and reservations can be made by calling the Chamber/Bureau at 649-6100.
"The event runs from 3 to 7 p.m. and businesses hosting booths will have the opportunity to interview potential employees on-site at several of the break-out or interview rooms set up," she said. "We’ll have generic application forms on hand for companies to use, with copy machines available. We’ll provide all the tools necessary for all employers to hire on the spot."
Some of the participating businesses include, but are not exclusive to, the Goldener Hirsch Inn, Aloha Ski and Snowboard, the National Ability Center, Park City Transit, Park City Mountain Resort, The Canyons and Deer Valley.
"We typically have between 200-300 in attendance, but basically people in search of a job will have a chance to work for a restaurant, hotel, resort or even a professional office," Carpenter said. "Employers are hiring for both full- and part-time jobs for all skill and experience levels."
The event is hosted by the Chamber/Bureau and sponsored by the Utah Department of Workforce Services, The Park Record, The Yarrow Hotel and Lewis Stages.
This year, Lewis Stages will be providing, for the first time, a shuttle service from two Salt Lake City locations to the job fair. The two pick-up points in Salt Lake are located at Parley’s Way and Foothill Drive in the K-Mart parking lot and at the Trax station at 1300 South and 300 West. Pick-up times will be staggered, starting at 2:30 p.m. at the Trax station and at 3 p.m. at the K-Mart, with pick-ups at each location rotating every hour and half. The last pick-ups will be at 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Trax and K-Mart respectively.
"This is all part of our effort to make this job fair feasible for those who live in Salt Lake but want to work in Park City," Carpenter said.
Carpenter said the Chamber/Bureau has put more into advertising this year’s event than in previous years in hopes of attracting more businesses and potential employees.
"The Chamber has really increased our advertising to help draw perspective employees to the event," she said. "We are advertising in 17 different publications for the job fair from Provo all the way up the Wasatch Front up to Ogden and out to Evanston. All of our ads are in Spanish as well and we also have spots on Hispanic radio programs."
The Chamber/Bureau will provide two translators for Spanish-speakers.
