Cheektowaga Chamber Hosts Job Fair 2013 | Business
The Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce will host "Job Fair 2013" on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Walden Galleria, Lower Level near the Apple Store
“This is a great opportunity and venue for those who are looking for employment”, said Debra S. Liegl, President and CEO of the Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce. “The list of employers participating in the Job Fair is evidence that there are positions here in Western New York that need to be filled”, said Liegl.
Those seeking a new career can benefit from attending a Job Fair and may have an advantage over others who may also be applying for these positions. “Many companies accept applications for employment on-line, which takes the personal touch out of the application process. Our Job Fair enables job seekers to meet with potential employers face-to-face, which may increase their opportunities for employment”, said Liegl.
Positions for which the employers are seeking employees include Cashier, Food Service, Assistant Store Manager, Manufacturing/Production, Machinists, Administrative Assistant, Inside Sales, Outside Sales, Data Entry, Tractor Trailer Trainees and Instructors, Independent Living Advisor, Security Officer/Driver, HR/Staff Training Assistant, Registered Nurses/Critical Care, Nurse Practitioners, Home Care RNs, School Bus Drivers, Personal Care Aid, Home Health Aide, Licensed Practical Nurse, Production/Manufacturing, Clerical/Customer Service, Maintenance Mechanic, CNC Machinist, Manufacturing Support/Maintenance, Machine Operators, Collection Representatives and Member Service Representative/Credit Union Tellers.
“This event brings together employers who are seeking qualified employees to fill immediate employment needs. Job seekers should attend this event with a supply of resumes and their own “one-minute commercial” explaining who they are, their accomplishments and qualifications and the type of work they are seeking,” said Liegl. “Hundreds of job seekers have attended the Job Fair in the past and many have received numerous job offers from this event. Last year, one of the employers scheduled five interviews for the following day from the candidates they met at the Job Fair,” said Liegl.
Walden Galleria is the Event Sponsor and WNY Jobs is a Corporate Sponsor of the Job Fair. In addition, NOCO Energy Corporation/NOCO Express, Durham Staffing, Inc., KR Communications, National Tractor Trailer School, Inc., Iroquois Job Corps, Catholic Health, First Student, Health Force, Remedy Staffing, ConServe, QMC Technologies, Financial Trust Federal Credit Union, Rosina Food Products, Seneca Niagara Casino, AT&T and Renewal by Andersen are just some of the companies who will be participating in the Job Fair.
