Senator Robach’s Applauds Dept. of Labor Job Fair’s

Rochester Senator Joe Robach applauded Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announcement that four job fairs will take place on Thursday, April 11 to connect job seekers with 250 businesses offering 5,000 jobs. Those who attend will have the opportunity to meet with businesses about potential job opportunities and take advantage of employment workshops offered by the state Department of Labor (DOL).

“Creating quality jobs and getting New Yorkers into those jobs remain our top priority,” Governor Cuomo said. “These state-sponsored job fairs are great opportunities for job seekers to meet with businesses from across the State that want to hire. I encourage New Yorkers, whether you’re unemployed or looking to make a career move, to sign up and attend one of these four events on Thursday.”

“Job fairs like these are just one service we provide to businesses at no cost to them,” said Labor Commissioner Peter M. Rivera. “For anyone – either business or jobseeker — unable to attend, I encourage you to visit our website and learn about the wealth of services we have available.”

Events are sponsored by the Department of Labor and the state Office of General Services.

All businesses participating in the career fairs list their job openings on Governor Cuomo’s “Jobs Express” website, located at www.jobs.ny.gov. Job seekers can post their resumes and search through nearly 70,000 jobs with positions available in every region of the state. Employers can use the website to search through submitted resumes and find highly qualified candidates in their own backyard. They can also post unlimited job openings at no cost. For more information, please call the state Department of Labor at 1-888-4-NYSDOL or visit www.labor.ny.gov.

Senator Joe Robach has teamed up with Monroe Community College, Time Warner Cable and the August Group to host a job fair of his own at Monroe Community College on June 6th from 2PM to 5PM at the R. Thomas Flynn Campus Center. For more information, contact Senator Robach’s office.
