“The COVID-19 pandemic has put tremendous strain on workers at every level of our economy, and as a result many South Jersey residents are facing unemployment or looking for a change in work to accommodate health and safety conditions. Now more than ever our annual job fair is needed,” said Camden County Commissioner Jonathan Young, liaison to the Camden County One Stop Resource Center.
“When attending the job fair, be sure to dress for success and bring plenty of copies of your resume as you will have a chance to meet directly with employers with current job opportunities.”

Kaye Personnel wants attendees to know that “We have numerous positions available for warehouse, forklift, office, production, fulfillment, customer service for temp to perm and/or direct hire placement for our clients throughout New Jersey and Philadelphia.”
