State Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. (D-Howard Beach) will host a job fair at Glendale’s The Shops at Atlas Park on Oct. 18.
More than 100 potential employers representing a variety of sectors are expected to participate in the event.
Addabbo said he hosts a job fair at least once a year for the public because he believes a lot of people are willing to work, able to work but can’t find work.
“I believe elected officials have a unique opportunity to help their constituents,” he said. “I wanted to try finding work for my people.”
The workshops scheduled for the event include a 10:30 a.m discussion by Audrey Lewis titled “Elevator Speech/Selling Yourself at the Interview,” that will be followed by an 11:30 a.m. forum on “Effective Interview Strategies” hosted by Bruce Hurwitz and a 12:30 p.m. workshop titled “You Think You Know the ABCs, Think Again” by Judith Graham.
“Job fairs offer a venue where people can find work,” Addabbo said. “Those who are persistent and successful.”
The fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Shops at Atlas Park, located at 80-00 Cooper Ave.
