Job-seeker alert: Expo to tout 250 vacancies

More than 250 job vacancies from 35 employees are among the benefits for attendees at a Career & Training Expo on Thursday, Oct. 22.

Hosted by the recently formed community coalition, Coatesville ACTION, the event, which will run from noon to 4 p.m., will focus on the entire job search experience.  On-site interviews, a computer lab, and training seminars will also be provided free of charge to job seekers, said a press release from the Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC).

At 12:30 p.m., Wings for Success will present a seminar entitled “Wearing the Right Attitude.”  At 2 p.m., Judith Lee of Communication Works Now will offer a session on “Your Online Persona & Networking in the Digital Age”.  Job seekers and community members alike can attend either session for free without pre-registering.

The acronym ACTION stands for “A Change Through Ideas, Opportunity, and Networking,” Western Chester County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Donna Siter said in the release.  "Our May 2015 Career & Job Expo helped get over 28 people jobs, and with Coatesville’s Centennial this year, we thought we’d make this event even bigger.”

The Coatesville ACTION group is comprised of volunteers from the following community organizations: Chester County Workforce Development Board, Chester County Economic Development Council, Western Chester County Chamber of Commerce, TMACC, Lincoln University, Chester County SCORE, and PNC.

“The Lincoln University’s Coatesville Campus is right on the ChescoBus LINK and Krapf A bus routes, so job seekers from Parkesburg to Exton and West Chester can conveniently get here,” TMACC’s Shannon Maria Jones said in the release.

Lincoln University’s Coatesville Campus is located at 351 Kersey St., Coatesville, 19320. Event flyers, employer listings, FAQs and additional information are available at
