Marlborough Works! Initiative offer opportunities for local job seekers

M MEDC job fairMarlborough – The Marlborough Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), in conjunction with the city of Marlborough and Quinsigamond Community College (QCC), will be holding a  free professional Résumé and Interview Workshop for interested job seekers on Wednesday, Sept. 4.

The workshop will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Marlborough High School Science Lecture Hall, 431 Bolton St.  It is open to all area residents, but spaces are limited to the first 40 respondents.

A QCC instructor will guide attendees through the topics, which will include creating an effective résumé, landing the interview, avoiding key résumé and job application killers, answering “problem” questions and ultimately obtaining a fulfilling career with a local employer.

All those who attend the workshop will receive priority registration and admission to a MEDC-sponsored Job Fair, which will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 24 from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at the Courtyard by Marriott-Marlborough, 75 Felton St.

Dozens of companies representing various industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, hospitality, retail, medical technology, education, defense, technology, banking, sales and marketing, and alternative energy, are expected to take part.

The Job Fair and the Resume Workshop are both part of the Marlborough Works! initiative, which Mayor Arthur Vigeant introduced last year to help jumpstart local employment. Both events are free for all individuals and businesses.
