FULTON, NY – Nearly 40 local employers are expected at State Senator Patty Ritchie’s second annual Job and Career Fair on Sept. 26 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Fulton War Memorial, 609 W. Broadway.
“There are so many people in our region wanting to head back to work,” said Senator Ritchie. “This event is all about pairing those hardworking job-seekers with local employers looking to hire.”
The event, which is free and open to the public, will also feature workshops to help attendees better their job-seeking strategies, including resume writing, improving interview skills, tips for job-hunting on the Internet and obtaining information for starting your own business.
Recently, Senator Ritchie hosted a similar Job and Career Fair in St. Lawrence County, where nearly 500 people looking for work had the opportunity to meet with employers.
Senator Ritchie’s job fair is being organized in collaboration with Beth Hilton, executive director of the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce; Christine Weaver, One-Stop Manager of Oswego County Workforce New York; and Tammy Elowsky, assistant director of the SUNY Oswego Small Business Development Center.
