ROSELLE, NJ - More than 100 job seekers arrived at Roselle Borough Hall on Wednesday morning in the hopes of hearing the words "you're hired."

When Mayor Christine Dansereau walked out of her office door, she never expected to see the large crowd going out the doors and wrapped around the building. People dressed up with resumes in hand, patiently waiting their turn to get a chance to speak to the many businesses at the Roselle First job fair. 

The mayor walked along the line of people stopping to shake hands and speak with the job seekers. “I though that this was going to be just for Roselle residents," said the mayor. “I was shocked to find that people were from as far away as Marlboro. It just goes to show that people all over New Jersey are hurting and need jobs.”
