70 Delaware employers prepare to meet job seekers

Delaware legislators continue their efforts to help the unemployed seek work through job fairs, where dozens of local companies look to fill a variety of positions.

U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons, and U.S. Representative John Carney recently teamed up to host yet another free job fair, this time in New Castle County after successful events in Kent and Sussex Counties. 70 employers are already on board to search for the perfect candidate including people determined to get back to work.  The job fair will be the final of three planned for the 2012 calendar, where past fairs drew more than 1,300 job seekers so far this year.

“As many of our friends and neighbors across Delaware continue looking for work, it is vital that job-seekers are given ample opportunities to hear about good-paying jobs available in the First State,” said Senator Carper.

Also, job seekers will be able to take advantage of workshops, career counseling  as well as resume review opportunities.

“I encourage all Delawareans in the market for a job to take advantage of this opportunity and to show up with resumes in-hand and ready to shine,” said Senator Coons.

The job fair will take place at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington on Monday, June 25th.

“With nearly 70 employers from New Castle County and the surrounding area participating, the job fair on June 25th will give many Delawareans the opportunity and support they need to find employment,” said Congressman Carney.
