We still have a long way to go in our economic recovery and I’m doing everything I can to make sure that Long Islanders have access to local jobs. I am focusing on measures and events that help small businesses, entrepreneurs, students and workers as the nation continues its path to economic recovery.
I held a career expo that focused on Long Island’s health care industry in December. It was the fourth major economy-related forum last year, with previous ones focusing on tax cuts for small businesses; how small businesses can benefit from the U.S. Export-Import Bank; and what career training opportunities are available at local institutions.
Over 20 vendors participated in the previous expo.
For information about how to participate in this month’s job fair as either a vendor or a jobseeker, call Rep. McCarthy’s office at 516-739-3008.
