New York - Hundreds of job seekers hoping to join the ranks of the employed will flock to the Renaissance Ballroom and Caterers in Borough Park on Tuesday for the a job fair to be hosted by the OU Job Board and NY Assemblyman Dov Hikind.
Over 500 people are registered for the job fair which will feature live interview with more than forty prospective employers in various fields and all salary ranges. There are approximately 300 jobs available, including opportunities in banks, hospitals, nursing homes, warehouses and sales, all of which are listed on the OU job board at www.oujobs.org. While registration for this event which will take place on August 30th from 11 AM â€“ 3 PM at 5902 14th Avenue is almost closed, walk-ins will be accommodated after 1 PM.
â€śWe are really here to help people,â€ť said Srulie Rosner, International Director of the OU Job Force in an interview with VIN News. â€śWe understand the pain people are going through and we want everyone to know that we are providing a service that is completely free of charge. This is our way of stretching out our hand to help people who are currently unemployed.â€ť
Over 700 people attended the OUâ€™s last job fair which was held in February and Rosner says that he is aware of approximately fifty to sixty people got jobs as a direct result of their last event.
â€śPeople ask what can a local assemblyman do to help people when the economy is so bad?â€ť asked Assemblyman Dov Hikind. â€śThe answer is a lot. It is so gratifying to know we are helping people earn a living. If we helped just one person, all the effort involved was worth it, but Baruch Hashem, we helped so many more people than just one person at the last job fair. We hope to be at least as successful this time around.â€ť
While most of the OUâ€™s job fairs have been held in the New York/New Jersey area, they have done similar events in Chicago and Miami with a large job fair in Israel attracting 2000 participants. The OU is planning another similar event in Cherry Hill, New Jersey in the coming weeks, with the next New York job fair tentatively scheduled for November.
