Nearly 400 job seekers met with employers Saturday at a job fair sponsored by State Senator Jose Peralta in conjunction with Elmcor Career Pathways and United Healthcare.
Thirty-five of the attendees were offered jobs at the fair, held at St. Paul the Apostle Church in Corona.
“The economy is improving, but many families are still struggling to make ends meet,” Senator Peralta said. “We were able to immediately help at least some of them at the fair. From past experience, I think a number of others will end up landing jobs thanks to the contacts they made at the fair.”
Some of the 24 employers on hand included Time Warner Cable, Resorts World Casino, Council for Airport Opportunity, New York Life, Coca Cola and a variety of government agencies, including the New York police and fire departments.
