An upcoming job fair will bring dozens of companies to Rochdale Village looking to recruit new employees.
Senator James Sanders Jr. will host an informational job fair in the Grand Ballroom of the Rochdale Village Community Center located at 169-65 137th Ave. in Jamaica. The fair will take place on Aug. 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“We have the best and brightest living in this district,” Senator Sanders said in an email to QNS.com. “My office is just giving them the opportunity to utilize their skills. As long as we have good, hardworking people in this community who need employment, I will continue to host job fairs to connect them with prospective employers.”
Companies in attendance include Pepsico, Frito Lay, FedEx, Walgreens, State Farm, People’s United Bank, Council for Airport Opportunity, NYC Human Resources Administration, United States Postal Service, Healthfirst, NYC Department for the Aging, Port Authority of NY & NJ, White Castle, FDNY, Queens Chamber of Commerce, U.S. Customs & Border Protection and World Financial Group.
“This informational job fair will be different from previous job fairs in that it will provide a guide on how to start a career with big-name companies and walk them through the application process during breakout sessions where specific instructions will be provided by representatives from the companies themselves,” Senator Sanders said.
New Yorkers are urged to come learn more about the hiring process, including peak season work availability, during breakout sessions at the event.
