ROADTOWN Tortola BVI, January 22nd, 2013 -- The Representative for the Third District, the Honourable Julian Fraser RA, has announced that he would be hosting a Job and Career Fair in his District.
The Job and Career Fair coordinated by the Third District Committee will be held at the Valerie O. Thomas Community Centre on Thursday, January 31, 2013. The duration of the fair would be from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and would include businesses and some Statutory Bodies in the District.
The Third District starts from Fort Burt in lower Road Town and includes Sage Mountain and ends at Fort Recovery to the west on Tortola.
According to the Hon. Fraser, the objectives of the Job and Career Fair are:
• for businesses in the District to get some valuable exposure,
• advise unemployed persons in the District of human resource requirements and needs, and
• to provide potential training for the jobs available or those that may become available
Hon. Fraser further said that “while this Job and Career Fair was not to guarantee anyone a job, it was however, important to facilitate access for both businesses and potential employees as to what might be available in the District".
Hon. Fraser also extended an invitation to all unemployed and underemployed persons in the District to come and interact with the participating businesses on Thursday, January 31, 2013.
There are well over 75 businesses ranging from small to large in the Third District. The Representative, as he prepares to host the Job and Career Fair next week Thursday is requesting that the District’s business community supports the job fair. Hon Fraser said a number of businesses have already confirmed their participation in the District Job Fair and “I thank them for exercising sound corporate citizenship.”
In addition to the businesses and persons seeking employment, there will be participation from the Department of Youth Affairs and Sports, Department of Education, and Department of Labour.
The Third District Job and Career Fair is the first of its kind to be held by The District Representative, and is expected to be a continuous event.
