Need A Job? Find One At Fairs In B’klyn, Jamaica

Thousands Of Positions Available

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that three job fairs will take place today, Thursday, June 13, to connect job seekers with 188 businesses offering 5,562 jobs in New York City.

Those who attend will have the opportunity to meet with businesses about potential job opportunities and take advantage of state-sponsored employment workshops.

“Creating jobs for New Yorkers remain our top priority, and these job fairs are a great platform for us to connect job seekers with employers in the New York City area,” Cuomo said. “There are over 5,000 jobs available, so I encourage New Yorkers— whether you’re looking for your first job or exploring the next step in your career—to sign up and take advantage of one of these events.”

The Dr. King Career Fair events today will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Brooklyn at Medgar Evers College, located at 1650 Bedford Ave.; and in Queens at York College, located at 94-20 Guy R. Brewer Blvd. in Jamaica.

“Job fairs like these are just one service we provide to businesses at no cost to them,” said Labor Commissioner Peter M. Rivera. “For anyone— either business or job seeker—who is unable to attend, I encourage you to visit our website and learn about the wealth of services we offer.”

Additional information about these events, as well as an online registration form, is available on DOL’s website at: www.labor.ny.gov/businessservices/ dr-king-career-fair- 2012.shtm.

All businesses participating in the job fairs list their job openings on Cuomo’s “Jobs Express” website, lo- cated at www.jobs.ny.gov. Job seekers can post their resumes and search through nearly 70,000 jobs with positions available in every region of the state.

Employers can use the website to search through submitted resumes and find highly qualified candidates in their own backyard. There is no limit to the number of job postings that employers can post at no cost.
