Working with our statewide partners, we are connecting area residents with jobs and growing our economy.
Nearly 100 applicants seeking positions in the technology sector turned out for our job fair on Wednesday. The event featured 22 area businesses that are hiring.
The event was the latest in a series of free, industry-specific job fairs launched last year in an effort to target high unemployment among Rhode Islanders and to match skilled workers with jobs in local companies. Nearly 3,000 area residents and well over 400 employers have participated in the series.
A job fair targeting the retail industry is scheduled for October 15 and another is set for November 12 that is open to all industries, with a focus on manufacturing. Both job fairs are free and will be held at the Roger Williams Park Casino.
