Dear Business Leaders,


The Otsego County Chamber of Commerce has TWO special career events coming up as an opportunity for businesses to find a qualified and skilled workforce for full time work and summer employment opportunities.


To assist with your job market needs we are partnering with the Laurens Central School District to have a Career Spark Day for 9-12 graders to illustrate to them the important skills needed for the current job market and the opportunities that exist in our region. Many of these students are also looking for summer job opportunities and internship opportunities. There are also teachers that are looking for summer employment that we have invited to also attend.


The event will take place on Thursday, March 12, 2020 from 9-11:30am and again from 12:30-2:00pm, at Laurens Central School, 55 Main Street, Laurens, NY 13796.  The following schools will also be participating:  Laurens, Milford, Morris and Edmeston.  Lunch will be provided. Set up and registration will begin at 8:15am.


We are looking for a panel of presenters to start off each time period focusing on the types of employment opportunities available in our area, employer expectations, scheduling, job training, potential internships and so forth.  Break-out sessions will follow the panel discussion allowing students time to meet potential employers, learn how to properly complete applications, how to dress for an interview, resume building and so forth.   


We will also have a Job Fair Expo open to the public on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at the Quality Inn of Oneonta from 1:00p.m.-4:00p.m. This is for all Job Opportunities:  part time, full time, special events. Please include any internships and volunteering opportunities as well.  This is a great way to reach out to the community and let potential employees know what you are looking for. 


The success of these events is dependent on support from our many businesses participating in these opportunities where we provide your company with increased visibility and at the same time providing benefit to your organization’s recruitment efforts.  Please see attached details for registration. For questions and more information please contact Barbara Ann Heegan @[email protected]

Thank you for your support of these highly visible and well publicized events.  We believe this is a great value to be able to reach such a wide spectrum of job seekers and have an impact on young potential employees in our region at the same time. 


If you are unable to participate in both events, please contact us! Please see attached registration form.
