Howard Beach, NY (April 25, 2016) Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. will host a hiring event next month in conjunction with The Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services.

Addabbo will partner with The Jewish Board to host a career fair Wednesday, May 11, at the Jewish Center of Kew Gardens Hills, located at 71-25 Main Street. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., representatives from the organization will be present to collect résumés and meet with potential employment candidates regarding more than a dozen open positions. The event is free and open to the entire public.

The Jewish Board will be interviewing for positions including direct support staff, crisis intervention specialists, peer specialists, recreation coordinators, maintenance workers, registered nurses, social workers, social work supervisors, case planners, intake specialists, receptionists, vocational counselors, case workers, cooks and mental health coordinators. Qualified candidates will also be considered for three managerial positions including assistant director, program coordinator and facilities manager.

Addabbo regularly partners with local businesses and organizations to hosts hiring events throughout the year, including a Senior Job Fair coming up on June 3 and a general job fair being planned for October.

“Finding a job can seem like a very daunting task, especially if you don’t know where to start,” said Addabbo.“Hiring events like this one are a great place to give job seekers a foot in the door with a particular organization or industry they are interested in, as well as make face-to-face connections with potential employers. When we help residents find work for themselves, we ultimately help the economy and the overall health of our community, and I am proud to continue the partnerships that allow me to host events such as this. I thank the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services for working with me to plan this great community event and look forward to scheduling more opportunities for job seekers in the near future.”

The Jewish Board has requested that job seekers who plan to attend should bring copies of their résumé and dress appropriately. Public transportation to the location is available by taking the Q20 regular (not limited) or the Q44, which both stop outside the Jewish Center of Kew Gardens Hills.
