PROSPECT PARK, NJ - The first-ever job fair held in Prospect Park attracted over 90 people and 26 entities looking to reach out to interested individuals.

"The public response was overwhelming," Instashan Chowdhury told TAPinto Hawthorne.  "We had a few out of towners that said they wished they had it in their local communities.  Job seekers thanked us for taking initiative.  Organizations were asking when the next job fair would be."

"Thank you to the job seekers, businesses, and above all, our staff who made this event a possibility," Mayor Mohamed Khairullah said online. "Wishing all tremendous success and joyous holiday season."
