U.S. Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons, and U.S. Representative John Carney will host three more job fairs this spring, including one on March 6th in New Castle County. The delegation will host job fairs in Sussex County in April and Kent County in June, and is urging businesses throughout the state to reserve their tables now. Business leaders will get to meet with and interview talented Delawareans ready with resumes in-hand.
The first job fair is being organized with Brandywine Consulting and will be held on Wednesday, March 6th at the Embassy Suites in Newark from 10 am to 3 pm.
“Helping more Delawareans get back on their feet and back into the workforce remains one of my top priorities,” Carper said. “Our economy continues to add jobs, but too many Americans and Delawareans remain out of work. By connecting job-seekers with many employers ready to hire, I’m hopeful that Chris, John and I can, in some small way, do our part to help more folks in Delaware get good-paying, reliable jobs.”
“While partisan obstruction in Congress continues to prevent us from helping the millions of Americans still looking for work, it’s important to me that we find other ways to help our neighbors,” Coons said. “Our job fairs these last two years have connected 10,000 Delawareans with employers ready to hire, helping our neighbors take advantage of our recovering economy. If you manage a business that’s looking to hire, I hope you’ll contact my office to register for this spring’s job fairs.”
“Connecting employers with qualified job-seekers is critical to strengthening the state’s businesses, families, and economy,” Carney said. “I encourage any business that is looking to hire to attend this job fair and meet skilled Delawareans who could make the difference for your organization.”
In addition to networking with companies looking to hire, job-seekers will also be able to participate in job-search skills workshops, receive career counseling, and have their resumes reviewed by experts.
