As someone who is focusing on measures and events that help small businesses, entrepreneurs, students and workers as the nation continues its path to economic recovery, I will be hosting my “Long Island Job Fair” in my district on July 23.
The event will take place on Monday, July 23 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Nassau Community College’s College Center Building Multipurpose Room.
We still have a long way to go in our economic recovery and I’m doing everything I can to make sure government and the private sector are working together to create local jobs here on Long Island.
I held a career expo that focused on Long Island’s health care industry in December. It was my 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, including Hofstra University, North Shore-LIJ, Nassau County Community College, Molloy College, Stony Brook School of Health Technology and Management, Winthrop-University Hospital, South Nassau Communities Hospital, the Soldier’s Project of Long Island, AFLAC, the Visiting Nurses Association of Long Island, Sanford Brown, and more.
The participants of the July job fair are being registered right now and will be announced prior to the event. For information about how to participate in the job fair as either a vendor or a jobseeker, call my office at 516-739-3008.
