Job Fair returning to mall Nov. 2

Staff Report

Advertising deadlines are quickly approaching for business participants for this year’s Glenwood Springs Job Fair, to be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Nov. 2, at the Glenwood Springs Mall. In order to take full advantage of pre-event advertising, businesses seeking employees need to sign up for the fair by Oct. 19.

The fair, sponsored by the Glenwood Springs Post Independent and the Colorado Mountain News Media Classified Center, is offering a range of advertising opportunities prior to the event as well as booth space at the fair.

All participating employers receive advertisements prior to the fair beginning Oct. 19, as well as booth space the day of the event. Marketing packages range from the basic Silver Package at $175 to the Platinum Package at $375, valued at $1,080, which includes a half-page color ad, an online recruitment ad from Oct. 19-Nov. 2, listings in print ads for the job fair prior to the event, and a five-day, full-color classified ad.

“This is our second year sponsoring the fair,” said CMNM ad assistant Jan Treadwell. “We had over 24 booths last year, and about 150 job seekers.”

This year, Treadwell is again expecting a range of employers represented, from government agencies to health care facilities.

“We also have temporary job placement companies and work-from-home businesses represented too,” she said.

Businesses interested in participating in this year’s job fair should contact Jan Treadwell at the CMNM Classified Center at 384-5319, ext. 248, prior to the Oct. 19 deadline.
