FULTON, NY – More than 300 people attended State Senator Patty Ritchie’s annual Oswego County Job Fair today (June 4) at the Fulton War Memorial.
Those in attendance were able to meet with nearly 50 employers, many of whom were looking to hire immediately.
Forty-eight employers participated in the annual job fair.
Collectively, those employers were hoping to fill more than 100 jobs.
“The local job market seems to really be opening up and we are seeing more and more quality applicants apply.” said Darcy Antonucci the director of Human Resources for Oswego Industries.
The job fair was sponsored by the NYS Senate.
Senator Ritchie came out today to support the event.
She went around and spoke with local employers and some of those attending looking for employment.
The senator encourages those who weren’t able to make the event to visit her website, www.ritchie.nysenate.gov, and view her online Jobs Bank where thousands of employment opportunities across New York State are listed.
