The International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Silver Spring is launching its 5th biannual job fair, taking place on Thursday, March 26 from 2:00-5:00pm at the Silver Spring Civic Center. The job fair will provide local businesses and community partners with access to more than 100 IRC job seekers, all at no cost! As the IRC’s Economic Empowerment Program seeks to help refugees become self-sufficient and in some cases, to reenter the careers they once held in their home countries, we provide our job seekers with intensive pre-screening and training in preparation of the job fair. Job fair attendees are carefully selected to ensure that this event helps local businesses meet their hiring needs. If your business or community organization is interested in attending the 2015 spring job fair, please email Elizabeth Ajunwa at Elizabeth.Ajunwa@rescue.org. This free event requires an RSVP and registration and spots are filling up quickly! If you are interested in learning more about the IRC in Silver Spring and our Economic Empowerment Program, you can contact Program Manager Matthew Fortier at Matthew.Fortier@rescue.org.
