(Sewell, NJ) – Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger and Freeholder Heather Simmons announced that Gloucester County will hold a Summer Career Resource Event on August 20 where employers will be taking resumes, applications and conducting on-site pre-interviews. 
 
The August 20 Career Resource Event will be held from 9 am to 12 noon at the College Center Building at Gloucester County College.  No registration is needed and there is plenty of free parking. 
 
“We are seeing signs that the job market starting to turn around, but it is very competitive and want to give our residents every advantage in getting their next job or promotion,” said Freeholder Director Robert Damminger. “It is encouraging that we will have 60 employers who are recruiting at this time of the year.”
 
Freeholder Heather Simmons, liaison to the Department of Economic Development said, “Residents should dress for success, have plenty of copies of their resume’ on hand and be prepared to interview on-site at the free Career Resource Event,” said Simmons.  “The event is a showcase of area employers who are accepting resumes for current and future positions.   In the past year 80 residents have gained employment as a result of attending one of our Career Resource Events.”
