Dec. 6 event at Buffalo Niagara Convention Center to offer presentations, interviews
Erie County, in partnership with the Buffalo and Erie County Workforce Investment Board ("WIB"), is sponsoring a job fair for residents seeking positions with Panasonic. The event will take place from 5-8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6, at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center. Panasonic presentations and interviews will take place every 30 minutes beginning at 5:30 p.m.
"Panasonic is a big addition to our economic portfolio in Erie County and they are hiring now. We are excited to sponsor this opportunity to meet face-to-face with Panasonic's team, and I encourage our local workforce to participate," Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz said. "These positions will be in high demand, so workers should have their resumes in order and plan on preregistering with Panasonic online to be considered for one of the many new positions there."
Among other positions, the Panasonic team will be interviewing applicants for production/manufacturing operators, machine operators, electrical/mechanical technicians and engineers.
Heather Gresham, executive director of the WIB, added, "Having an employer the size of Panasonic come to town does not happen very often, so this is a rare chance for local jobseekers to get in with a company that produces cutting-edge, in-demand technology. It's exciting and we are looking forward to a great atmosphere and productive job fair on Dec. 6."
Residents planning to participate in the job fair should first RSVP and upload their resume to the Panasonic website at https://us-careers.panasonic.com/signup/careerfair.
