The event is being coordinated to assist Middlesex County residents who are unemployed or underemployed.  Businesses will conduct on-site interviews while seeking qualified candidates for the job openings that exist within their organizations.

 

Job seekers are encouraged to bring an ample supply of resumes and be dressed to impress.

 

“It’s great to have so many local businesses participate and provide potential job opportunities to Middlesex County residents,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, chair of the County’s Business Development and Education Committee.

 

“Our job fairs are great examples of a public/private partnership where county government collaborates with local business to put people back to work or get them better jobs,” said Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios.  “Middlesex County is looking to give the best opportunities possible to its businesses as well as its highly skilled workforce.”

 

The Office of Workforce Development hosts several job fairs throughout Middlesex County each year.  In addition, the office also organizes monthly employer recruitments at its offices, located at 550 Jersey Ave. in New Brunswick and at 161 New Brunswick Ave. in Perth Amboy.

 

The Spring Job Fair is co-sponsored by the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders, New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development and the Middlesex County Workforce Development Board.
