The Niagara County Department of Employment and Training will be holding an outdoor career fair on Wednesday, June 1 at Oppenheim Park for those seeking employment.  More than 50 companies with open positions have signed up to take part. 

“Our career fairs have a tremendous track record in matching up job seekers with employers, and the current demand of employers looking to hire has never been higher,” said Niagara County Legislator Jesse Gooch, Chairman of the Community Service Committee and a small business owner whose company has previously participate in the event.  “Whether you are currently unemployed or looking for a change, the right opportunity may be waiting for you at the career fair.”

Donald Jablonksi, Director of Employment and Training said the event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Oppenheim Park, located at 2713 Niagara Falls Boulevard in Wheatfield.  Businesses will be located along the entrance driveway to display information on their company and meet with job seekers.  No appointment is necessary.

“We were overwhelmed last year with employers in desperate need of employees and a year later, that demand has only increased,” said Jablonski.  “Anyone looking for a job, regardless of skill and educational level, should attend this event.  There is a broad spectrum of jobs available and our WorkSource1 team will be present to provide job seekers with servicers like resume writing and interview prep, as they conduct their job search.”
