Those looking for employment opportunities or seeking a career change are encouraged to attend State Senator Patty Ritchies St. Lawrence County Job Fair, an event being held on September 18 from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. The free event will take place at the Ogdensburg Oddfellows Hall, located at 1111 Linden Street (corner of Route 37) and will feature more than 50 employers looking to hire.
Its often said that looking for a new job is just as much work as actually having a job, said Senator Ritchie. Thats why its so important to have the connections, skills and tools to make that search not only easier but also more successful.
Im pleased to once again host my St. Lawrence County Job Fair, which will help match the hardworking and talented people of our region with companies and organizations looking for dedicated employees.
Last year, more than 1,000 jobseekers attended Senator Ritchies job fairs held in St. Lawrence and Oswego Counties, which included nearly 100 employers, seminars on resume writing, interview skills and tips on landing a new job. As a result of the events, hundreds of attendees were able to find employment. For a full list of participating employers, or to register, please visit www.ritchie.nysenate.gov.
