Marlborough, MASS. September 25, 2013 – The number of available job openings more than tripled at the second annual Marlborough Works! Job Fair.
Held at the Courtyard by Marriott Marlborough last night, the event attracted approximately 400 jobseekers looking to fill over 300 open positions. That’s three times more jobs on offer than during the fair’s inaugural run in June 2012, which showcased just over 100 openings.
The free event, organized by the Marlborough Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), in conjunction with Quinsigamond Community College (QCC), was part of Mayor Arthur Vigeant’s initiative to increase local employment. The Mayor, who was onsite to meet and greet participants, said the increase in job opportunities is a strong sign of an improving local economy.
“This year, we had a diverse range of jobs from warehousing to high-level engineering and everything in-between,” said Vigeant. “Marlborough has a fantastic employment base—well-educated, hard-working people—and if companies can pick out one person from the crowd, it not only saves them a fortune in advertising and online activity, but it puts one of our local residents to work close to home. The great thing here is that the city benefits, the employer benefits, and the employee benefits. So it’s a win all around.”
More than 30 small and large companies from various industries took part in the fair. Among them were Boston Scientific, Bose Corporation, Raytheon, Hologic, Weetabix, Ken’s Foods, Marlborough Hospital, and many others. Employers represented about a dozen different industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, finance, renewable energy, and biotechnology.
City Council President Patricia Pope, who toured the fair alongside Mayor Vigeant, said the arrival of new companies to the city has helped the local job market grow.
“There are a lot of new opportunities and a lot more jobs out there locally, because we’ve brought so many more companies into the city now,” said Pope. “And from a social aspect, I think it’s nice for our residents to know that their community cares and that there are corporations here in the city that are here to help and employ them.”
Stuart Leinson from Marlborough-based Raytheon was thrilled to see the lineup at his company’s table.
“As a recruiter, you don’t get as much face to face time these days,” Leinson said. “So it’s a pleasure to get a handshake in and talk to people.”
Lindsey Mastrototoro, account manager for Randstad recruiting on behalf of Bose Corporation at the fair, agreed that meeting applicants in person is the best way to assess if they’re the right fit for the job.
“You get such a wide range of applicants” Mastrototoro said. “At the very least, you’re building your network and at the very best, you’re putting a lot of great people to work. So I think just having applicants here and meeting them face to face overcomes any online recruiting barriers. I already have 3-4 submittals to send to each of my roles open and it’s only 7pm, so I would say this [job fair] is pretty good.”
Dan Corrigan from the fast-growing Marlborough-based Noon Turf Care agrees that a job fair is a great place to meet jobseekers, but also a fantastic opportunity to reach future customers.
“I met about 5-6 candidates for sales and marketing that I am very interested in,” said Corrigan. “But this fair is also a great way to network in the community. There are a lot of local people that we haven’t reached out to yet, and we’re using this as an opportunity to speak to them directly.”

We had not used a lawn service before, and after trying to get companies to come and take a look, Noon was the only one that spent time on the phone with us going over our situation. (Dan C. was the person we dealt with–very informative and non-pressuring). After many years of children playing on the lawn and our own general neglect, our small yard looked rather sad. This year, our first with Noon, has made tremendous difference. The lawn survived the heat, the rains, the shade, our dog.
It looks green and does not mind being walked on! Friends who come to visit make unsolicited positive comments such as “How do you keep your lawn looking so good?” Bottom line here: this company has a good product and program, the techs who come out are friendly and spend time answering our questions, and do not try to upsell us. As a matter of fact, the rep just recently did not push on the over-seeding, saying that what we had in house could work well, too. I want to say that I am in NO WAY connected to this company. It is just a company we have gotten great results from, and plan to use them again next year. I know that this review does not seem to match what some others have said, but I do find that people are faster to complain than to compliment. This review is simply a reflection that if pleased, we like to say so. If we were not pleased, we would call the company and fully expect them to make it right. That has been the tone of everyone with whom we have dealt at Noon.

We have used Noon Turf Care for our lawn care and we have been very happy with them for the following reasons:
* Our lawn has never looked so good.
* We find the pricing to be very reasonable.
*Customer Service has been extremely polite and informative whenever we have spoken with them. Also, we appreciate the call ahead notifications so that we can ensure that our cats are inside before application.
*The application technician is professional and does a great job with the application as well as with answering any questions.
We will continue to use them and would recommend them to our friends.

As a first time home owner, and being completely in the dark about lawn care when my husband and I recently moved into the suburbs of Sudbury, I have to say; that Noon Turf Care was remarkable from day one.
We wanted the best for our new home, and of course the best looking lawn in the neighborhood. I started my internet searches, and called around to several places to get price quotes and details of the services that each company offered. When I called Noon Turf, Jonathan answered the phone and was so delightful to speak with. He gave me all of the information that I needed, without pressuring me, as he knew that I had been calling around to other places as well.
After reviewing my notes, searching the internet some and asking my husband what he wanted to do, we both agreed that the local family owned company that seemed very knowledgable, reputable, have heard about from others, and seemed to be the kindest with sharing information, was the one we would try out- Noon Turf Care, being just that.
From start to finish, they have been so great. The customer service people were very helpful; explained the pricing, billing, payment process and the service details. The technicians that came to our home, back in May were very kind and our lawn looks beautiful and I have no complaints. I have been home on most of the days that they came to service the lawn and trees- they are never a disturbance, are quick, and are very kind. In fact, we have seen the same faces all summer, and I think that says a lot.
We have recommended the company to several of our friends and neighbors, and will continue our business with Noon Turf Care. We thank you greatly for all of your hard work and our beautiful green lawn!!! Wishing you the best in your company growth within our cozy Sudbury neighborhood!

I am new to yelp and felt compelled to write a review about my experience with Noon Turf care because I have never been happier with my lawn. It’s unfortunate to hear all of the negative feedback about Noon Turf Care. I’ve been a Noon customer for the past several years and have never had an issue. I started using them when they still mowed lawns and plowed driveways. Being a small business owner myself, I respect what they have done with their company and how far they have come. I continued to use them when they switched to Turf Care only and I stopped using NTC for a brief period due to financial reasons however my lawn continued to look healthy. Anyone who lives on the East Coast knows how hard it is to maintain a healthy lawn, especially in the summer. It tends to get yellow and dried out but their program allows for your property to maintain healthiness even through the 100 degree heat waves of summer. I am not advanced in the least bit when it comes to the details of their applications but they produce results. At the end of the day, I look at my lawn and I am extremely happy with the way it looks.

Quality lawn care, specifically the feeding side of it, is a tough business. Homeowners who have tried know how difficult and expensive it is to create and maintain a truly great lawn over the years. I think some people feel relieved when they write that $500 check to some lawn care company, then get upset when that great lawn doesn’t materialize in 12 months.
I’m hardly an expert; what I know comes from years of applying, and sometimes skipping, granular feedings. I know that I mowed my lawn too short for years. I complicated things by driving my rider mower too slowly; dry conditions combined with the powerful suction of the mower to gradually remove topsoil from the property. Then I dumped the bagged grass behind my house, taking all that topsoil and the nutrient-rich grass clippings with it.
Two years ago I decided to hook up to town sewer. In the process, I had most of my yard dug up. New loam was spread, and seed planted. For a variety of reasons including some torrential rain storms, the lawn fared poorly. So I re-seeded, and this spring did some research and responded to one of the area companies that clearly has a hefty marketing budget: Noon Turf Care (perhaps you’ve seen their mailer).
We’re about halfway through the season, and I can honestly say my lawn looks better than it has in the 25 years I’ve lived here. There have been three service issues I’ve raised (inadequate application of spring lime, inadequate core aeration due to missed spots, and several small burn spots after a liquid treatment). The company addressed each of these (they came back and re-applied the lime; they offered a free fall core aeration; they planted new seed on the burn spots).
There are still areas of my lawn that need work (more topsoil, root removal, pH adjustment), but most of this is not the responsibility of Noon Turf Care. Their responsibility is to show up when they say they are coming, to apply the lawn treatment comprehensively without missing any areas, and do it quickly and quietly.
Today, I mow my lawn every 4-5 days. I no longer bag the clippings, but rather let them help feed the lawn (eventually I’ll have to de-thatch). I try to be home when Noon Turf Care technicians visit (I know this is difficult for most people); it helps with things like defining lot lines, discussing issues with the previous treatment, etc.
So, lawn care is a tough business, compounded by a lot of homeowners who feel they know more about quality lawn care than people who are formally trained. As for me, I enjoy looking at my freshly mowed lawn, I plan to keep my current provider, and I can’t wait to see how the lawn looks a year from now.

We recently moved into our new home and the lawn was in terrible shape. After seeing Noon Turf Care advertising, we decided to give them a call. After speaking to one of their sales rep, who was incredibly kind and knowledgable, we signed up for their lawn services. A crew came to our house the next day! Our lawn has received 2 treatments and already it is looking better than it did prior to moving in. I can’t wait to see what the lawn looks like after receiving all treatments. Thanks Noon Turf Care!

The makers of the Kite Patch plan to test the product in Uganda before getting U.S. approval.
A small, square patch that’s not yet available in the U.S. is promising to work as a force field against pesky mosquitoes. It’s called the Kite Patch, and it’s a sticker that emits chemical compounds that essentially make you invisible to the bloodsuckers — they block a mosquito’s ability to sense humans.
If this is as effective as promised, the Kite Patch could be a game changer in preventing mosquito-borne illnesses like malaria and West Nile virus. It’s been developed by a venture capital group called ieCrowd and scientists at Olfactor Laboratories, a research facility in California.
“According to its developers, users simply have to place the patch onto their clothes, and they become invisible to mosquitoes for up to 48 hours. This is big news for developing countries like Uganda, where residents have little beyond mosquito nets and toxic sprays to combat the illness-spreading insects.”
The scientists behind the patch are raising money on Indiegogo to do rapid field testing in parts of the world that are more affected by mosquito-borne illnesses. The campaign has already blown way past its original goal, but for $10, you can provide a five-pack of Kite patches to a family in Uganda. For $85, you can send a 100-day supply and get some for yourself. The American backers will be the first to receive Kite patches after the company gains regulatory approval.
The Asian tiger mosquito, an invasive, disease-carrying pest, was likely introduced to the United States from used tires shipped over from Asia.
The mosquitoes that feed on people are attracted to over 300 gases and other compounds emitted by human skin. Why Mosquitoes Love Me, And Other Mysteries Revealed
“It’s a really unique way of doing product development,” ieCrowd’s Grey Frandsen told Wired. “This technology is too important to just funnel directly to the Walgreens. It needs to be part and parcel of people’s daily lives all over the world.”
Not everyone finds these disease-spreading irritants so annoying. As our sister blog The Two-Way reported last month, mosquitoes have a type: They prefer heavy breathers “with Type O blood, sporting a red shirt and more than a smattering of skin bacteria. Preferably either pregnant or holding a beer.”
