Job seekers and employers can find the perfect match at the next hire-on-the-spot job fair sponsored by the Union County Board of County Commissioners on Wednesday, September 22, at the Warinanco Sports Center in Union County’s Warinanco Park, located at 1 Park Drive in Roselle. The job fair will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
FedEx, UPS, NJTransit, Amazon, Farmland, and Wakefern are among the many firms seeking to hire qualified employees at the September 22 job fair.
“The new job fair is part of our efforts to ensure that qualified Union County job seekers can connect with the right employers more quickly and effectively. We encourage everyone to come and participate,” said Union County Commissioner Chairman Alexander Mirabella.
“Our residents and our business community both need to rebuild after the COVID-19 crisis, and the aftermath of Tropical Storm Ida has added to the challenges. I want to thank the participating businesses for reaching out to connect with job seekers and help speed Union County on the road to recovery,” said Commissioner Sergio Granados, who is the Commissioner Board Liaison to the Union County Workforce Development Board.
