Today is the Friday before the StarkJobs.com Spring Job Fair. Don’t forget it is taking place on Tuesday April 15th from 10 AM to 2 PM. This event we are being joined by 80+ employers which of one includes Carrols, LLC or you may know them as Burger King.
Carrols started as a division of a larger Midwestern firm back in 1960. Now they currently own and operate over 570 restaurants that are under the Burger King Brand. This allows them to operate in 13 states and employ over 17,000 people. Carrols has always and always will continue to run their company for the benefit of everyone involved. They take the time to invest in their employees, to help them grow and develop with the company. At Carrols you’re not just a number and it is not just a job that you punch in and out of. Yes, you have to be committed and have the drive to want to succeed and grow because, Carrols provides the environment for you to make a career.
“Over the last 7 years I have hired close to 100 employees
from your job fairs for our Burger Kings
in the Akron/Canton area, and 67% of them are still active in our system!!”
Carrols, LLC will attending this Spring’s StarkJobs.com Job Fair at Kent State Stark. Their continued growth allows them to accept resumes a continuously, but at the Job Fair they will be hiring for hourly and salaried Manager positions. Ray Lynn who is the Human Resources Manager that attends our Job Fairs has been coming back for about 7 to 8 years. Ray said he did not learn how great of an organization we are until he acquired more stores for the Akron/Canton area. Speaking with Ray I learned that he has attended other job fairs in parts of Ohio. He made it a point to give his rep, Jamie, a call and tell him that the others don’t compare.
“I’ve been to job fairs and have gotten horrible service,
no applicants, and no advertising of the event.”
“I shared with Jamie that I gave the coordinator of that event Jamie’s name,
and told them they should attend one of your job fairs, because you know how to do it right!!”
That last quote is my absolute favorite! And, like Ray has said, you will not find a job fair that can even begin to compare with what we have to offer! StarkJobs really works hard to make sure the employers and job seekers have the best experience possible. As Ray and other employers have told me before they are consistently pleased with the job fair locations and the amount of advertising we do.
“You have numerous employers at these events that helps draw a larger crowd,
and your customer service to us (the employers) is outstanding.”
Like Ray man of the employers that we have attending our Job Fairs are very satisfied with the outcome of each event and they plan on attending for many, many years. Please check the Job Fair site for StarkJobs.com to get all of the event details including who’s hiring! Have questions? Comment on here or message us on Facebook!Posted by Joy Belus

The 2014 year marks the 8th year that Career Marketplace, Inc. has been holding their StarkJobs.com Job Fairs! The StarkJobs team works so hard the day of and everyday in between to make sure that each event is a success. We do nothing short of making calls, sending emails, networking and we even passing out fliers all around town ourselves. But, we can sit here and tell you how great our events are until we are blue in the face and it still may mean nothing to you as a job seeker. That’s why we like you to hear it from the employers that have been attending our events for years! And who better to listen to than a company who has literally been with us since the beginning. Shearer’s Food’s, LLC has been attending the StarkJobs.com Job Fairs since its inception 8 years ago.
“Shearer Perfection In Every Bag”
Shearer’s Foods manufactures and distributes their award-winning snacks out of Brewster, Ohio. Some of their company brands include the Shearer’s Pretzels, Salsa Con Queso and of course their Potato Chips. Not only do they have their own brands but they also manufacture and distribute for their private label customers which allows their snacks to be enjoyed worldwide.
One thing you may not know is that Shearer’s basically lives by their slogan, “Shearer Perfection In Every Bag”. At Shearer’s they take Perfection to a whole new meaning. They attach that word to their product because they strive for their perfection in customer and employee support, their merchandising, and perfection in their corporate culture. These perfectionists get to manufacture, warehouse and distribute their product in a modern facility with “crunching-edge equipment”. They are continuing their leadership in the snack food industry so they are always in search of bright, talented and innovative candidates looking to grow and contribute to their Shearer Perfection.
That’s why Shearer’s has been attending our Job Fairs for the past 8 years and they will continue to do so for this Spring’s Event. Carrie Powell who works in the Human Resources department for Shearer’s, and personally attends the Job Fairs, had some great things to say.
“I think that the Career Marketplace Job Fairs are very effective in recruiting and public relations for our area. The advertising that the events have prior is incredible and the turnout of attendees has never been a disappointment. The fairs are a great compliment to the applicant traffic already generated by the StarkJobs.com and AkronWorks.com websites.”
Not only did Carrie have those kind words to say, she even spoke about this Spring’s location. She said “The venue at Kent State Stark is a beautiful building with an incredible staff who only add value to the company’s investment in attending the fair”. The location is very easily accessible and the StarkJobs team actually puts up the signage before the event, so not only the employers have a clear direction of the location, but the job seekers as well.
The team here at StarkJobs strives to provide a professional and successful event for both our employers and job seekers. So, it’s nice to know that we have employers who appreciate all the hard work we put into each and every event.
” The events themselves are a class act- the Career Marketplace team
has them down to a science and treat each company
as if they are the most important vendor at the fair.”
We look forward to seeing our friends from Shearer’s Foods, LLC and the 80+ other companies attending this Spring’s Job Fair at the Kent State Stark Campus. Don’t forget the event is next Tuesday April 15th from 10 AM to 2PM. Come prepared with several resumes in hand and dress to impress.
