Jersey City, NJ – The Hudson County Community College (HCCC) Center for Business & Industry (CBI) has planned a Job Fair for Wednesday, October 17, 2012. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the College’s Culinary Arts Institute/Conference Center at 161 Newkirk Street in Jersey City — just two blocks from the Journal Square PATH Station.

HCCC CBI Executive Director Ana Chapman said the College invites employers from the full spectrum of industries in Hudson County to participate; she expects to have companies representing the Finance, Healthcare, Hospitality, Manufacturing, Retail, and Transportation, Logistics & Distribution fields on board that day.

The Job Fair will be open to Hudson County residents who are 18 years of age or older and who possess a high school diploma or GED. Job-seekers are asked to bring copies of their résumés with them and to be certain that they are armed with names and contact information for their references. In addition to applying for employment with the participating companies and organizations, job-seekers will also have the opportunity to attend information sessions on Résumé Writing, Interviewing Skills, Targeted Job Searches, and Enhancing Workplace Skills.

Employers interested in participating in the HCCC CBI Job Fair are asked to contact Ms. Chapman either by phoning (201) 360-4242 or emailing achapman@hccc.edu.
