Local businesses and organizations are gearing up to recruit new staff members at Project Self-Sufficiency’s first ever outdoor Career Fair on Thursday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Representatives from local businesses, organizations and educational institutions will be on hand to promote job openings and scholastic opportunities. Additional job searching resources, such as mock interviews, will be offered to attendees by Project Self-Sufficiency Career Center staff.
The Career Fair is free and open to the public; all attendees must wear masks. The event is being held outside on the agency’s Newton campus (127 Mill St, Newton) to accommodate concerns about gathering during the lingering coronavirus pandemic. In case of inclement weather, the Career Fair will be held on May 24.
“We are excited to be offering our first outdoor Career Fair and we encourage anyone who is interested in advancing their career to attend,” said Project Self-Sufficiency Executive Director Deborah Berry-Toon. “Job seekers can get immediate feedback on their resume and interview skills in addition to learning about employment opportunities and options for furthering their education.”
