GREENWALD, LAMPITT & BEACH TO HOST SEPTEMBER JOB FAIR

Sixth District Legislators Bring Local Employers, Job-Seekers Together in Cherry Hill Event

Today Senator James Beach, Assemblyman Louis Greenwald and Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt (all D-Camden), announced they will host a job fair for area residents. This event will bring together a diverse mix of local employers looking to hire, as well as helpful state services for unemployed individuals and struggling families.

The job fair will be held September 8, 2011 from 11:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. in the Cherry Hill Community Center at 820 Mercer Street, Cherry Hill, 08002. For planning purposes, those wishing to attend are asked to register by calling (856) 435-1247, (856) 429-1572 or emailing AsmGreenwald@njleg.org.

“In these tough economic times, many New Jerseyans are struggling to find a job,” said Beach. “Our Sixth District job fair will feature a wide variety of employers looking to hire, as well as a number of state agencies that provide valuable assistance to families struggling to make ends meet.”

“With unemployment historically high, it is more important than ever that we bring local employers together with area residents looking for work,” said Greenwald. “We hope this event will bring some help to the middle-class families of the Sixth District who need it the most.”

“Connecting local business communities more closely with our state’s incredibly talented pool of employees has always been a priority of mine,” said Lampitt. “This event will accomplish that goal, assisting our residents during a difficult economy.”

Residents wishing to attend are asked to dress in appropriate professional attire and to bring sufficient copies of their resume for prospective employers.

Employers in the financial services, health care, food and entertainment, public safety, personal services, non-profit and other industries are expected to attend, seeking employees for a variety of positions.

A list of the employers expected to attend will be posted on the legislators’ Facebook pages closer to the event.
