Freeholder Mary Ann O’Brien announced on Friday, Oct. 14 that the Burlington County Freeholder Board will be hosting their annual County Job Fair on Friday, Oct. 21 through the County’s Workforce Development Institute. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Burlington Center Mall on Route 541 in Burlington Township.
“As Burlington County’s regional business needs continue to grow, so do our efforts to meet those needs,” said Freeholder O’Brien. “The Freeholder Board is proud to once again provide residents of varying talents and backgrounds the opportunity to meet with over 40 employers from diverse fields such as health care, hospitality, retail, finance, skilled trades, transportation, technology and more.”
“Events like the County Job Fair, which connect the County’s talented workers with employers looking to hire, are a critical part of our efforts to strengthen our economy,” added Freeholder O’Brien. “We encourage everyone to come out and see what these companies have to offer, and show these companies that Burlington County has a skilled and eager workforce that can support them.”
“In past years we have seen an overwhelmingly positive response from this free event, and we expect the same this year,” Freeholder O’Brien continued. “It is also important for residents to feel the personal impacts of improving our local economy. If even just a handful of our citizens find jobs through this job fair, we can consider the effort a success.”
