Have you heard about the Post Sandy Job Fair?
Anyone who has been living in New York or anywhere else with access to the news is aware of the devastation caused by Super Storm Sandy last October. You are also probably aware of all of the relief efforts put in place to help those who may have lost homes, businesses and had other challenges after the storm. Although we are almost one-half a year past the event, many people are still out of work and trying to get back into the job market.
In response to the disaster, Goodwill Industries developed a collaboration of community partners including Workforce1 and numerous businesses to organize the Post Sandy Job Fair which will take place on May 14th, 2013 at the Resorts World New York City in Queens. There is no cost to attend and it is open to all job seekers regardless of whether you were directly affected by the storm. Although the actual event is in Queens, the job opportunities are located throughout the greater New York and New Jersey area.
Employers who participate are committed to finding qualified employees to fill their vacancies. There will be workshops both before and during the event op provide job seekers with the most updated job seeking skills and information.
As a job seeker, you have the opportunity to register on-line here for VIP priority entry: http://www.postsandyjobfair.org/register/jobseeker . If you are a person with a disability requiring an accommodation, be sure to make note of it on the registration page.
We encourage you to bring several copies of your resume and dress for success as the employers will be there looking for job candidates to fill a variety of positions. If you are a job seeker, we suggest that you bring your resume, your skills and enthusiasm and meet with the employers on May 14th.

As always we wish you the best of luck and success in your job search.
