Jamaica, NY – May 3rd, 2013 – More than 20 non-profit organizations led by Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey, Inc. are hosting a regional Job Fair as part of a noble effort to help people find work after the destruction-packed hurricane. The Post Sandy Job Fair for Greater New York will be held on Tuesday, May 14, from 9 – 3 p.m. at Resorts World, 110-00 Rockaway Blvd., Jamaica NY 11420.

Space is free for employers who are encouraged to register through the organization’s Web site at www.postsandyjobfair.org.

Anyone interested in finding a job is welcome, and may pre-register through the Web site.  Attendance is free. The organizing committee expects as many as 250-300 companies from a wide range of sectors to participate, each one having committed to make at least one job offer as a result of the job fair. Employers will determine the number of actual jobs that are available. The day of the event, experts will provide workshops and assistance with interviewing skills and résumé preparation.

The goal is to create immediate employment opportunities by exposing qualified job seekers to employers with the intent to hire, and to stimulate the employment climate in Greater New York to accelerate the momentum of our recovering economy.

So, let’s all try and put the effects of Hurricane Sandy far behind us by supporting this worthy effort to help people in our area find work.
