We’ll help you bridge the labor gap

Tri-Lakes Job Fair is March 14

Our area has had a problem for a while now, but it is a good problem to have. We have more vacant positions than we have qualified candidates to fill them.

The Enterprise is working on this by matching job seekers with positions that need to be filled. We’re here to help solve this challenge in numerous ways:


We have a new, programmic, total talent reach website that pushes recruitment ads and matches them to resume requirements. Both recruiters and job seekers can be matched on more than 100 national websites such as ZipRecruiter and glassdoor.com, more than 600 local sites from ours at Jobs.AdirondackDailyEnterprise.com to the New York Times, and more than 1,000 industry sites such as HR.com and Hospitaldreamjobs.

Get the Job Guide

A special employment guide will be distributed to the local high schools and colleges, and inserted in the Enterprise and Lake Placid News. It contains helpful articles on writing the perfect resume, effective networking and dressing for success. It will also have a sneak preview of those establishments who are seeking to fill specific positions.

Tri-Lakes Job Fair

The Adirondack Daily Enterprise will have its third annual Tri-Lakes Job Fair from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 14 at North Country Community College’s Sparks Athletic Complex in Saranac Lake. You’re all invited, both job seekers and employers, whether you’re looking for a full or part-time position, a summer job or a professional career. The Enterprise is partnering with NCCC to promote this event that will encompass job opportunities from hospitality to health care. It serves students considering careers in the community, as well as non-students, and it’s an opportunity for local businesses to share their needs and ideas through networking.

The need is evident with the increase in businesses looking for skilled and/or unskilled workers. We expect this event to be a well attended, as in previous years. It might be the largest job fair in the Tri-Lakes area.

The Saranac Lake Rotary Club will be on hand to help applicants improve their resumes and offer mock interviews. Volunteers are offering this service for the serious job seeker or as practice for those new to the job market.

If you know of someone seeking a job or career, seasonal or permanent, or just looking for a change from their current position, tell them to come on down to the job fair. For more information, call us at 518-891-2600.
