State Senator Patty Ritchie will host her second annual career and job fair on Sept. 26 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Fulton War Memorial, 609 W. Broadway in Fulton.
“To get our region’s economy back on track, we need to make sure unemployed New Yorkers are given the opportunity to go back to work,” said Senator Ritchie. “This job fair is all about pairing ambitious job seekers with companies and organizations who are looking for hard working people that will help their businesses grow and become more successful.”
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.
Last year, more than 50 businesses looking to hire took part in Senator Ritchie’s Oswego County job fair and a similar event held in St. Lawrence County.
As a result, hundreds of job-seekers were able to find employment.
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.
Job-seekers should preregister for the event, and can do so by visiting www.ritchie.nysenate.gov
