July Fun in the Sun

Summer is officially in full swing, and as always, there’s no shortage of exciting events happening here in our local area. If you’re busy searching for jobs in Lehigh Valley, PA, don’t forget to give yourself time off to enjoy the season.

Here at HTSS, Inc., we like to be outside in the warm summer weather every chance we get. Winter will be here before we know it, so it’s important to soak up the sunshine while it’s here.

Since there’s always something fun going on, deciding which events to attend can be a challenge. Here’s three July happenings we’re interested in, and we think you’ll like them too.

Kutztown Folk Festival

Held from June 29-July 7, the 70th Annual Kutztown Folk Festival offers fun for the whole family. The oldest continuously operated folklife festival in America is home to the largest quilt sale in the country — but that’s just the beginning. Enjoy crafts, delicious food and continuous entertainment on five stages each day. Plus, there’s plenty of entertainment for kids, including the Children’s Farmyard Theater, crafts, pony rides and a carousel.

Harry Potter and the 8-Movie Marathon

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you won’t want to miss the eight-movie marathon at The Mahoning Drive-In Theater in Lehighton. From July 4-7, all Harry Potter films will be shown in order on 35mm film over four nights. Definitely a magical holiday weekend, this fun event features vendors, games and more. If you want a truly immersive experience, overnight passes are available.

Blueberry Festival

If you enjoy blueberries — and who doesn’t? — don’t miss the Blueberry Festival at Burnside Plantation in Bethlehem on July 20-21. This family-friendly event features all things blueberry. Enjoy live music, kids crafts and activities, live colonial demonstrations and delicious blueberry desserts. Those 21 and over can also visit the Blueberry Brewery Tent to sample Lehigh Valley’s beer, mead, wine and more.

As a staffing and recruitment professional for over  30 years, I have seen many changes in the industry. Over that time, I’ve witnessed a transformation in the way organizations view staffing services. Today, we see more and more companies using staffing services as a strategic tool, rather than just for temporary fill-ins.

At HTSS, Inc., our focus is on helping companies create proactive workforce plans. Our goal is to help our clients use staffing strategically to increase capacity, overcome hiring freezes, access specialized talent, better manage increased workloads, and enhance overall productivity.

For our candidates, we help to uncover truly rewarding job opportunities—jobs that are a match to each candidate’s skills, and jobs that offer key experience and growth potential.

We look forward to strengthening our relationships with our current clients and candidates, as well as forming new and exciting partnerships in the future.
