Recruiting Employers - Speed-dating for Jobs 2013

recruiting employersMAGOG: The Centre Jeunesse-Emploi (CJE) Memphrémagog invites small, medium and large-sized companies in the MRC of Memphrémagog to register with the 4th annual Speed Dating for Jobs, if they find that they will be in need of human resources during the next 6 months. The event will take place on April 20, from 10a.m. – 4 p.m.) at l’école La Ruche in Magog. Traditionally, the CJE work with young people from 16 – 35 years of age but the goal of this event is to help all those, of any age, who are searching for work within the MRC of Memphremagog.

Participating employers, with numerous job openings, will be able to carry out speedy-five-minute interviews with interested candidates who are looking for work. This original method of recruitment is fast and effective and proves to be inexpensive (many options available in one location and no extra advertising costs for companies). The process attracts many candidates and gives an added sense of visibility to the participating companies. Companies which take part in the event also benefit from new sources of future employees, thanks to the CVs that they submit.

“Our previous experience with this type of job clinic has shown us that there is a real need for such an event. We are happy to show employers and the population that we do listen to their needs and have come back in full-force with the 4th edition of Speed-dating for Jobs in Magog. A conference on the topic How to discover the hidden market of the available jobs will be offered, once again, something that we consider a definite plus for someone looking for work,” noted Josée Boily, Director of the CJE.

It is important to mention that employers who have more than one position to fill in their company and who are available, on April 20, may set up a kiosk and actively participate in these flash-interviews. Other employers may post the available positions on the Mur d’emploi (The Employment Wall) and CVs will be collected for them.

The Speed-dating for Jobs project is an initiative of the CJE Memphrémagog, made possible with the collaboration of Employment-Quebec of Estrie and falls within the scope of the Mois de la formation et des perspectives d’emploi (Month of training and job prospects).
