Harrah’s Career Fair at HCC to be Held Monthly
There are great jobs out there! Recently, Doris Johnson and Shirley Brady from Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and Resort Employment Department interviewed 34 job-seekers at Career Connections, the West Waynesville Campus of Haywood Community College.
With 200 jobs to fill in the next six to nine months, Harrah’s Employment Professionals will be visiting West Waynesville Campus one Wednesday every month to consider job candidates in panel interviews. In these group screening sessions, candidates are given the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to meet strangers, break the ice, and initiate warm relationships with customers. These panel interviews are the first step to obtain a second individual interview. One of the first panel candidates has already accepted a position with Harrah’s and will begin work soon.
Career Coaches conduct three one-hour workshops to prepare candidates for these panel interviews: Interview Basics, Hospitality Customer Service, and Icebreakers and the Panel Interview. Please call 828-246-9233 to enroll, to schedule your interview appointment, or to find out when the next Harrah’s Career Fair will be held.
