Monmouth County partners will hold job fair at Brookdale Community College

FREEHOLD, NJ  – If you are looking for a job, you should attend a job fair from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26 at Brookdale Community College, 765 Newman Springs Rd. You will have access to companies seeking talented residents in every discipline, from hospitality and health care to telecommunications, computer science, finance, education and everything in between.

Dozens of local employers and employment resource organizations will be participating in the free event. No registration is required for job seekers.

“In addition to bringing in top employers from throughout Monmouth County, we are providing great seminars for job seekers to help them put their best foot forward and achieve financial stability while they are searching for a job,” said Amy Fitzgerald, who directs the county’s economic and workforce development initiatives.

During the job fair, a seminar entitled “Seven Secrets for Successful Job Search” will be presented by Patricia Licata of the Jersey Shore Association for Human Resources. The session will begin at 4:30 p.m. and registration is not necessary.

The county’s One-Stop Career Center is also offering three other career development workshops in advance of the job fair to help job seekers prepare for the event. To find out more about the pre-job fair seminars and to register, call the career center at 732-683-2111.

The event is sponsored by the Monmouth County Department of Economic and Workforce Development, Jersey Shore Association of Human Resources, Brookdale Community College, Monmouth County Workforce Investment Board and Monmouth-Ocean Development Council.

The county offers ongoing job services at its One-Stop Career Center in Eatontown. In particular, the Fort Monmouth Resource Center has services available to job seekers and workers who will be displaced with the impending September 2011 closing of the fort.

“The county continues to redirect its resources to be more responsive to the needs of the business community,” said Freeholder D’Amico, liaison to the county’s Department of Economic and Workforce Development. “This job fair is one way we are helping people and the business community during these very difficult economic times.”
