Youth Job Fair Coming

Youth Job Fair Coming More than 25 employers - ready and anxious to hire - will be on hand Thursday, May 19, 2005, when the Burlington County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) sponsors its Youth Job Fair at the Burlington County Human Services Facility, 795 Woodlane Road, Westampton..

The Youth Job Fair will run from 2-6 PM and is open to youth ages 16-21 who are seeking employment. Participants should dress appropriately (business attire is recommended), bring at least 20 copies of their resume, and prepare to be interviewed and possibly hired on the spot. .

The Job Fair is sponsored by the Workforce Investment Board, the Youth Investment Council and the Board of Chosen Freeholders. The Burlington County Job Fair, for prospective adult employees ages 18 and older; is scheduled for June 24th..

“Burlington County’s economic growth continues to outpace the national average,’’ Freeholder Deputy Director Vincent R. Farias said. “In the past 10 years, we have experienced more than 50,000 new jobs and 2,600 new businesses..

“Years of careful, deliberative planning are paying off,’’ he continued. “The revitalization of the Route 130 Corridor, centered on the new RiverLINE, has paved the way for renovation and expansion of existing businesses, and the opening of new businesses..

“As was our vision, it all has translated into job creation. This Freeholder Board has continued to support education, and studies indicate that many businesses are attracted to Burlington County by the quality of our employment force, and the fact that the vocational training in the county is second to none.’’.

“Last year’s event proved to be a huge success, not only for employers, but for all youth who attended,” said Workforce Investment Board and Youth Investment Council Chairperson Barbara Weir. “It truly was a win-win situation, which we hope to replicate again this year.” “Members of the Youth Investment Council are extremely pleased that so many employers are seizing this opportunity to offer youth various types of opportunities,” said Workforce Investment Board Chairman Robert Santare..

Industry groups expected to be represented include, but are not limited to, clerical; sales; retail trade; restaurants and food services; bank tellers; cashiers; and military among others. Those seeking additional information - employers or job seekers - should call (609) 265-5603 or check www.burlcowib.com.
