2018 Meriden Career & Employment Fair
Employers who are looking to hire can find the talent they seek on Thursday, October 25, 2018 at the 2018 Job, Employment and Career Fair at Westfield Meriden Mall at 477 Lewis Avenue, Meriden, CT (https://www.westfield.com/meriden)
Sponsored by The Workforce Alliance, R-J Media Group, AmericanJobCenters, Making Meriden Business Center, and the Midstate Chamber of Commerce.
The Westfield Meriden Mall will be transformed into an employment networking space from 1:30 p.m. through 4:00 p.m. and will feature 25 employers or more. At our last Job Fair in June there were more than 300 registered and talented job seekers...this is a crowd that you must connect with!
The job fair is co-hosted by Workforce Alliance, the American Job Center, the Midstate Chamber of Commerce, the Record-Journal Publishing Co. and the Making Meriden Business Center.
This is one of a series of job fairs held this spring in south central Connecticut to bring together jobseekers and employers in the region. Workforce Alliance runs four American Job Centers in New Haven and Middlesex Counties, including the one right at 85 West Main St., Meriden, CT.
Jobseekers can get more information at the American Job Centers in Meriden, New Haven, Middletown or Hamden, or visit www.workforcealliance.biz/business-services/recruiting-hiring.
Additional employer and job seeker resources will be onsite during the job fair, including the Business Services Unit of the Workforce Alliance and a photographer to take LinkedIn profile photos.
