QUEENSBURY - The public is invited to explore work and career opportunities at the upcoming 22nd annual Job Discovery event, set for Thursday March 18 in the Adirondack Community College gym.
The event, this year from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., features representatives of more than 60 employers, offering information and advice on careers in their respective organizations.
One of the event organizers, Mike Irish of Warrensburg, said that Job Discovery now offers more than ever for job seekers, considering the recent upheaval in the economy.
"This is a vital event because so many people are out of work and looking to make career changes," he said.
In the past, more than 2,000 people have attended the event, and participating employers that have presented at other job fairs have stated that this is the premier event of its kind - and that they use the contacts they've made at the fair for future hiring considerations.
This year, Job Discovery features workshops designed to assist those looking for work, and resume advice from employers.
The workshops are "Re-evaluate your Job Search - Making the Transition" from 9 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. and "Job Search Basics" from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
The Job Fair is free and open to all. Featured opportunities presented by employers traditionally include full- and part-time jobs; year-round work as well as seasonal positions, Irish said.
