The 2023 Double Scoops Job Fair & Ice Cream Social was a big success, with 100 participants joining at The SeaLife Center for an evening of networking, job recruiting and ice cream eating.
Participants were greeted by the Seward Chamber of Commerce staff with a "Mad-Lib" to fill out each vendor business tag-line. Each vendor booth had their tag-line printed at their booth, with QR codes that linked to their Job Board Listings on Seward.com. If the participant filled out the entire Mad-Lib, they were entered to win a Cotopaxi Backpack donated by Forests, Tides & Treasures. Everyone also received raffle tickets to enter for prizes donated by each participating business.
Here's a peak at the Vendor Cards at each booth:

Double Scoops Job Fair & Ice Cream Social began as a community social event for Seward Chamber of Commerce Members and locals to enjoy frozen treats and visit The Alaska SeaLife Center together. This event transformed into a job fair in response to Members needs for employee recruitment in Seward.
