Free Job Fair & Career Resource Event Next Friday

(Deptford, NJ) – The Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders will sponsor a Job Fair and Career Resource Event next Friday, March 7, 2014 from 9 – 12 noon at Gloucester County College.
 
Freeholder Director Robert Damminger said, “There will be at least 54 companies and businesses located in our region at the Job Fair and Career Resource Center and many will be conducting preliminary interviews on-the-spot.  Our residents should be dressed for success and have plenty of resumes ready when they attend the Job Fair.”
 
Freeholder Heather Simmons, Liaison to Economic Development and the Workforce Investment Board (WIB), said that past career events hosted by the County have proven successful for many job seekers. 
 
“The Job Fair will provide job seekers access to dozens of employers in one place at one time.  The companies that participate are looking for a wide-range of workers and skill-sets and span all types of industry from healthcare, retail and service, to finance positions,” said Freeholder Heather Simmons.

Freeholder Lyman Barnes, Liaison to Education, said that the Career Academic and Planning Center at GCC, in conjunction with the WIB, held a series of free workshops to help individuals hone their interview, resume and other job seeking skills.

Barnes said, “Job seekers should get their resumes in order, focus on the type of career they want to pursue, research the companies that interest them and practice their interviewing skills for the March 7 Job Fair.”
 
There is no registration necessary for the Free Job Fair and Career Resource Event on March 7 from 9 am to 12 pm.  The event will be held at the Eugene J. McCaffrey College Center Building, 1400 Tanyard Road, Sewell.
