Monmouth County, partners to connect employers with employees
FREEHOLD, NJ – If you are looking for a job, you should attend Monmouth County’s Workforce Development Job Fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20 at the Brookdale Community College Recreation and Events Center, 765 Newman Springs Rd., Lincroft.
You will have access to employers seeking talented candidates in every discipline, from hospitality and health care to finance, education, telecommunications, computer science, and everything in between.
One hundred local employers and employment resource organizations will be participating in the free event. No registration is required for jobseekers.
“In addition to bringing in top employers from throughout the Monmouth County area, we are providing resources for jobseekers to assist them in preparing for their search,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso, liaison to the County’s Division of Workforce Development.
During the job fair, five resume professionals will be available for one-on-one resume reviews. In a separate room, sign-ups will be available for a 15 minute personal resume review. Job seekers are encouraged to make an appointment upon arrival as the reviews will be done on a first-come, first-served basis.
“The County continues to provide resources and to respond to the needs of its business community,” said DiMaso. “This job fair is one way we are helping residents and the business community during these difficult economic times.”
A wide variety of employers will be present at the fair. From AXA Advisors to United Parcel Service (UPS), there are companies to meet nearly every field of employment. A full list of employers will be posted on www.visitmonmouth.com by Thursday, Sept. 19.
The event is a partnership with the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the County Workforce Investment Board, New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Monmouth-Ocean Development Council, Jersey Shore Association of Human Resources, LADACIN Network, and Brookdale Community College.
