In observance of Thanksgiving Day, all our career centers and administration office will be closed starting Wednesday, November 25 at Noon through Friday, November 27th, 2020.
We celebrate the harvest and blessings on Thanksgiving Day which is a National Holiday in the United States and Canada.
Thanksgiving is the shared harvest that started in 1621 by the English colonists “Pilgrims of Plymouth” and the “Wampanoag people”. While the Pilgrims were hunting for their meal to feed 50 or so colonists, the Wampanoag showed up surprising them with a feast that included venison, shellfish, fish, vegetables, and beer. This kind gesture allowed for the two groups to socialize without any problems and celebrate the feast together.
Since that day of sharing, the New England Colonists kept the tradition of giving thanks as Thanksgiving Day, a day of prayer for God’s blessings such as the end of the drought and many other blessings.
Thanksgiving became a national day on October 3, 1863, by President Abraham Lincoln, to be celebrated on Thursday, November 26th.
Every president thereafter, proclaimed the holiday to be the last Thursday of November.
Today we gather our families and celebrate Thanksgiving as a day to be thankful for all the blessings in our lives and a day of rest and spending quality time with our loved ones.
We are grateful for each one of you who we serve, thank you for trusting us with your hiring needs and job searching process.
May all blessings fall upon you and your families!
