Our conversation today centered around job seekers and the unique approach Fauquier County is taking to attract more people to their employers.

Joining us: Guy Curtis – Director of Marketing for Lord Fairfax Community College (becoming Laurel Ridge), Donna Comer – Program Manager at LFCC Workforce Solutions/Fauquier County Economic Development Coordinator, and Marty Bywaters-Baldwin – Director of Workforce Services at Rappahannock Goodwill Industries/Director of Workforce Services at the Virginia Career Works’ Culpeper center.

We learned about the Career Cafe – an unintimidating way to network and talk with local employers – and the important role it plays in Fauquier County connecting job seekers to local businesses. Donna & Marty explained how the cafe came to fruition, it’s goals, and how people can participate. The next event will happen on January 19, 2022.
