SOUTH KINGSTOWN – The South Kingstown Chamber of Commerce and the RI Department of Labor and Training's Business Workforce Center have partnered to host a job fair at the Wakefield Mall, Thursday, Dec. 9 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
There will be 21 employers looking for applicants, including Dunkin Donuts, Wendy's, Friendly's, Cracker Barrel, Papa Gino's, AMF Bowling, Wal-Mart and Savers. Local businesses include Brewed Awakenings.
The executive director of the Chamber of Commerce, Joe Iacoi said he contacted the Department of Labor and Training last month to meet the needs of the displaced Tim Horton workers in South County.
“I thought it was a good time for this especially for the Tim Horton workers. It was customized to meet the needs of the service industry,” Iacoi said.
Iacoi said the job fair aims at individuals with customer service skills and those who enjoy working with the public.
Iacoi also said Liberty Rentals helped with putting the job fair together by providing tables and seats at the mall for employers and those seeking jobs.
Applicants should dress to impress and bring a resume. The event is free and open to the public. The Wakefield Mall is located at 160 Tower Hill Road in Wakefield.
