Need summer employment?

The Department of Workforce services will hold an open house at its office on Sidewinder Drive on May 5 for people looking for employment opportunities this summer.

Joe Knudson, Utah Department of Workforce Services connection team supervisor explained, "We think this is a good time for us to get the word out about summer jobs for those people who are being laid off from the resorts," Knudson said.

From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. attendees will have the opportunity to network with employers and learn about what DWS services. A DWS staff member will also teach employers and job seekers how to use their website to apply for jobs, Knudson explained.

Job seekers are encouraged to bring a resume. But if they don’t have one, a DWS staff member will help them create one, Knudson said.

Getting to know job seekers makes it easier to recommend them for employment, Knudson explained. The office also provides a meeting place for Parkites to network.

Home Depot will attend the open house to meet potential employees. Susan Angle, associate support supervisor and employee at the Home Depot for five and a half years explained that the number of new-hires will depend on how busy the store gets this spring.

The positions at the Home Depot will be temporary and employees will be allowed to work up to 120 days. The store is looking to hire cashiers, lot attendants, who keep the parking lot clear and help in the customer loading zone, garden associates who will be responsible for stocking shelves and watering plants along with sales associates, Angle explained.
