EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Assemblywoman Nancy J. Pinkin spearheaded her second annual Job Fair at the East Brunswick Public Library last week, welcoming over 170 guests to apply for positions with 25 local employers.  The event was an example of what Pinkin called, "Good government in action."

"Middlesex County is one of the top business corridors in New Jersey, " Pinkin said, " Business development, especially in East Brunswick, is active, not passive.  If government can energize the services we provide, we can help businesses to grow." 

I addition to providing the opportunity for individuals to apply for jobs, Pinkin also recommended that business wonders desiring to grow their brand in Middlesex County contact the Middlesex County Economic Development Office and take advantage of the free services available there: "They can tell you where to locate your business.  You can sit down for free and get the best statistics about where to locate in the county."

Pinkin also discussed her interest, along with that of the township's new administration, to restart the Chamber of Commerce in East Brunswick to support growth and development, especially on Route 18.  "An East Brunswick Chamber of Commerce would become involved in active marketing to connect with the community.

The Assemblywoman encouraged any parties interested in restarting the East Brunswick Chamber to contact her legislative office

The Job Fair's longest line for those seeking employment was the one for the East Brunswick Public Schools, followed by that for Rutgers University.    Among other employers represented were the Magyar Bank, the Columbia Bank, and St. Peter's Healthcare System.

The East Brunswick Public Library also strove to make job-seekers aware of the varied employment programs and online resources available at the EBPL.  The Learning Express features a "Job and Career Accelerator" that guides users through the process of developing resumes; seeking and preparing for interviews; and conducting effective follow-ups.  The Library also provides links to online job postings.

Additonally, the Library recommended the New Jersey website for job and resume postings.
