Job Fair for West Valley Inn Employees Postponed
August 23, 2016
CRANSTON, RI —While it continues to look for a buyer, the West Valley Inn has asked the Department of Labor and Training (DLT) to postpone a job fair for affected workers that had been scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, August 24, at the Providence/Cranston netWORKri One-Stop Career Center. DLT will provide an event update as soon as details are available.
At the restaurant’s request, DLT conducted a Rapid Response orientation session last week to help both the employer and employees prepare for the looming transition. DLT is ready to help any workers who are laid off with career counseling, résumé, job search, and interviewing tips, and information about possible training opportunities. As always, DLT offers these and other re-employment services at our four netWORKri One-Stop Career Centers located in Providence/Cranston, Wakefield, West Warwick, and Woonsocket.
