Harmony Participates In 2022 Career Fair
After more than a year of virtual events, it was very rewarding for Harmony Enterprises to participate as a partner business in the 2022 Bluff Country Collaborative Career/Job Fair this past Wednesday, March 9th!
This year’s event was held at the La Crescent, MN Area Event Center from 9 am – 4 pm. This free fair was open to both students from area high schools, as well as the general public. The goal of the 2022 career fair was to find help individuals find a new job, or explore a new career opportunity.
Other participants included businesses from retail locations, daycare providers, hotels, realtors, universities, military organizations, rehabilitation services, first responders, and financial institutions.
At the fair, we were able to share who we are, what we do, and samples of weldments that our master craftsman produce every day. This helps to show potential employees and students the high level of quality that goes into each of our manufactured recycling balers or waste compactors.
Why Do We Participate In Career Fairs?
Why does Harmony Enterprises participate in career fairs like this one? Harmony’s core focus has always been career, community, culture, and company. Our company was founded in 1962 as a way to provide career opportunities in manufacturing to residents in a primarily agricultural area.
Not only do we enjoy the opportunity to share our story and tell regional communities and students what we do, but it also provides us with a potential pipeline for future employees. It also gives us a soundboard to communicate the importance of manufacturing in today’s economy and why students should take a second look at manufacturing as a career.
We have participated in many similar fairs during the past few years, including virtual events during the Covid lockdown. With a continued presence, we have been able to create and build lasting relationships with students as they grow through their high school years.
We are proud to be able to share that from these relationships, we were able to interview and hire students from regional schools for employment as a result of the March 9th BCC Fair! Our newest 2nd shift press brake operator starts part-time this month, moving to full time upon his graduation in May. Now that is a career fair success story!
