Burke Job Fair

burke job fair thumbBURKE - Burke Mountain Resort opened its doors Wednesday night to host for its second job fair.  This time for around 80 potential employees.

Burke held the event from 4-7pm with the hopes of filling a variety of different jobs including retail, snow making, and maintenance.

The applicants were able to apply for multiple positions.  Attendee Kris Russell said, "It went pretty smooth.  I talked to a couple managers and it helped out (good) because I applied online, plus coming here really got my name out there too."

Sales Marketing Director, Jessica Sechler, was one of the interviewers at the job fair .  "We have about thirty different positions available and underneath those positions are multiple openings, meaning we are hiring multiple people for the same spot."

They are looking to fill close to 300 job positions, but Sechler says this is normal, "we hire pretty much the same positions every year, and the same amount of people every year."

Overall Sechler was happy with the turnout of both job fairs and believes that they will help to fill at least half of the open positions.
