Assessing Interest in Job Fair

Advance Thief River is assessing the level of interest area employers have in participating in a job fair.

If you are an employer, interested in participating in a job fair, please complete this short online survey. Estimated time to complete is less than five minutes.

Last year, Advance Thief River brought leadership to three job fairs in the community, one of which was virtual and two were in-person events (one adult and one student fair). It goes without saying that all events were made possible through collaborations and partnerships. The Talent Taskforce, whose members include representatives from the community’s largest employers, played a large role, as did Minnesota DEED, Northwest Private Industry Council, TRF Public Schools, Northland Community and Technical College, and the Thief River Falls Chamber of Commerce.
