COTTONWOOD -- There are sparks flickering showing the economy is beginning to fire-up once again. It’s not fully there yet and job seekers need every advantage. But, in some areas, the iron is hot.

Just in time, the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce and its partners are returning this year with its annual Verde Valley Job,

Career and Education Fair. It is an opportunity to see many employers in one place and get a shot in the arm for that job search. For those with positions to fill, it’s also an opportunity to screen a number of candidates at one time.

The Verde Valley Job, Career & Education Fair takes place April 3, 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., at the Verde Valley Fairgrounds, 800 E. Cherry St. in Cottonwood.

Some employers have reduced their staff and downsized, so job seekers want to have skills that will capture those precious availabilities. Other employers will have positions in which you can grow into and some have the potential for a long-term career.

Education is always an important part of the Job Fair. This year, the Job Fair includes not just representatives of Yavapai College and the four-year Old Dominion University, but also technical schools, as well as art and beauty and massage schools. It is also an opportunity for the more mature candidate to spend some hours and learn a skill to take you in a new direction.

The Verde Valley Job, Career & Education Fair is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, Arizona state Credit Union, Diamond Resorts International Kindred at Kachina Point, Rainbow Acres. Verde Valley Community Hospice, Verde Valley Medical Center and Wells Fargo Bank.
