More than 1,400 job seekers went to the Queens Center Mall’s job fair. Borough President Helen Marshall also stopped by.

More than 1,000 eager job seekers flooded the Queens Center Mall last week.

At the mall’s third job fair on Thursday, May 17, employers like Citibank, Resorts World and the United States Tennis Association were among the 25 recruiters in attendance in search of new employees.

Borough President Helen Marshall also stopped by to socialize with recruiters and job seekers. There were more than 400 jobs available at the fair and over 1,400 job seekers attended the event in hopes of finding employment. Many said they heard about the opportunity through advertisements and social media.

Over 300 candidates are expected to be called back for a second interview, according to Dawn Simon, senior manager of marketing at the Queens Center Mall.

“It will help the economy of Queens with new job opportunities,” she said.
