State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach) this week announced that he is holding his second annual Senior/50+ Job Fair on Friday, May 15, in Kew Gardens.
The event, sponsored by Addabbo in conjunction with Queens Community House, is free and open to the public, and is being held at the Kew Gardens Community Center at 80-02 Kew Gardens Rd. Interested job seekers may visit the fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to learn about employment
opportunities, fill out applications, and share their resumes with a variety of employers. More than 20 employers committed to hiring workers 50 years of age and older will be represented. The facility is wheelchair accessible and business attire is suggested.
“Workers in their 50s and older bring a wealth of life and employment experience to the labor force, which is a win-win situation for employers and job seekers alike,” Addabbo said. “Many older New Yorkers lost their jobs and had trouble finding new employment in the recent recession, but now our economy is picking up and the job market is improving. I hope my constituents will take the opportunity to come out to the job fair and see what kinds of positions are now available.”
For further information, contact Frank Fazio in Addabbo’s office at (718) 738-1111.
