Niagara County to Hold Outdoor Career Fair in City Of Lockport

The Niagara County Department of Employment and Training will be holding an outdoor career fair for those seeking employment on Wednesday, August 10 at Ida Fritz Park in Lockport.  More than 50 companies with open positions have signed up to take part. 

“Last year’s career fair at Ida Fritz Park was very well attended by both employers and job seekers and I’m glad to see the county has continued with these outdoor events,” said Niagara County Legislator Rick Abbott.  “It is still a tight labor market and there is a broad spectrum of job openings, so whether you looking to get into the workforce or seeking a change from your current career, it is well worth attending.”

Donald Jablonksi, Director of Employment and Training said the event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Ida Fritz Park, located at 105 West Ave in the City of Lockport.  The rain date is August 17th.   Businesses will be located throughout the small park area to display information on their company and meet with job seekers.  No appointment is necessary.

“Our department receives calls every day from employers looking for workers to fill a host of positions,” said Jablonksi.  “Anyone looking for a job, regardless of skill and educational level, should attend this event.  Plus, our WorkSource1 team will be present to provide job seekers with servicers like resume writing and interview prep, so they have the support they need as they conduct their job search.”
