The economy being what it is, chances are you know someone who is unemployed or underemployed, including possibly yourself. The TriCounty Community Network (TCN) has announced announced the First Annual TriCounty Community Job Seekers’ Forum on Thursday, November 3 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the TriCounty Performing Arts Center & Village Productions (TriPAC) at 245 East High Street in Pottstown.
TCN is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving health, social and environmental conditions in Western Montgomery, Northern Chester and Eastern Berks counties in Pennsylvania. The event will enable job seekers to learn about job opportunities in the Tricounty area, hear first-hand from employers and participate in a Q&A session with human resource professionals from area employers.
Presented by TCN and coordinated by the TCN Exelon Nuclear Workforce Development Program, the Job Seekers’ Forum will include: AlliedBarton Security, Exelon Nuclear, HCR ManorCare, Lowe’s, PeopleShare Staffing, Pottstown Memorial Medical Center, and Robert Half International.
“Unemployment is a major issue in today’s economy and especially in the Greater Pottstown area, where the unemployment rate was 11% in August,” said Jennifer Doyle, executive director at TCN. “Workforce development is a major focus of our efforts at TCN and we believe programs like this will help job seekers in our community gain the necessary tools and information to best position themselves for a new job. We appreciate Exelon Nuclear and the other companies participating in the program for stepping up to help.”
