“We have received an overwhelming response from businesses, health care agencies and educational institutions across the North Country, many who are looking to hire right now, and others who are prepared to help job-seekers with the tools they need to find a career that’s right for them,” said Senator Ritchie. “People can learn about what jobs are out there, and how to be ready to go get them.”

In addition to accepting job applications, exhibitors will provide career counseling, assistance with resume-writing, and tips for improving interview skills, as well as information about starting your own business.

Over 300 job seekers attended a similar event sponsored by Sen. Ritchie in Fulton.

“We want to show people who are looking for a job or exploring new career options what kind of training and educational programs are available here in the North Country that will help them reach their goals, and provide for their families,” Senator Griffo said. “People are sometimes surprised at the number of high paying jobs that are available in Northern New York if you have the right combination of skills and experience."

Participation in the Job Fair and Career Expo is free, and preregistrations are being accepted by clicking here.

Businesses, employers and agencies are welcome to reserve a space and obtain additional details by calling 393-3024.
