encourage those seeking employment to attend a job fair, meet with businesses
and learn more about available positions in their area,” said Governor Andrew

Attendees of the fair will have the opportunity to meet with
businesses about potential job opportunities. The State Department of Labor
(DOL) will also be offering employment workshops.

about how helpful this event can be. Department of Labor staff members are on hand
to help answer your questions, review your resume and point you to businesses
on site that have available jobs in your field,” said State Labor Commissioner
Peter M. Rivera.
