Here is the press release from Express Employment Professionals.
Give the gift of employment by joining Express Employment Professionals’ Pay It Forward Hiring Drive, as we work to place 100 job seekers in Roanoke and the New River Valley during the period of November 1 through December 21, 2012.
In the spirit of the Christmas hiring drive, Express will donate $10 to Feeding America Southwest Virginia for each associate placed. Being out of work during the holidays can be particularly tough, and we would like to make sure as many people as possible earn a paycheck just in time for Christmas.
Join us in our effort to help put 100 people to work in our community during this time, bringing hope and encouragement to them and their families.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP
1. Hire an Express employee from Nov 1 through Dec 21, for at least one week. Not only will you gain a qualified worker to help meet your needs, but that worker will earn a paycheck before the holidays.
2. Provide the Express employee a work reference he/she can use in their efforts to gain future employment opportunities.
3. Share our campaign with other area businesses to assist us with our vision of employing and providing a paycheck for 100 unemployed people during the holiday season.
