The Niagara County Department of Employment and Training will hold a “mini” walk-up career fair next Thursday, Sept. 24, for those seeking employment. Eight companies with open positions have signed up to participate and more are expected to take part.
“Niagara’s WorkSourceOne is all about connecting job seekers with employers and, like so many other things, it has been a challenge during the pandemic,” said Niagara County Legislator Jesse Gooch, chairman of the community services committee. “That’s why we are excited to be able to offer a mini walk-up career fair, which may not be as expansive as some of our past events, but allows us to help those looking for jobs while maintaining proper safety protocols.”
Director of Employment and Training Donald Jablonksi said the event will be held on the front lawn of the Trott Access Building at 1001 11th St., Niagara Falls (weather-permitting). Those who attend will be required to wear a mask.
Participating businesses include: Home Depot, Remedy Staffing, Express Employment Professionals, Panera Bread, New Directions, Seneca Niagara Casino, Empower and the NFTA.
“The employers taking part are looking to fill a wide spectrum of positions, so there are real opportunities for job seekers,” Jablonksi said. “And there is no appointment necessary, so simply come join us on the front lawn at the Trott Access Building and let our WorkSourceOne team help you get hired.”
