Twenty employers and counting are now signed up for Rep. Carolyn McCarthy's “Long Island Job Fair,” which she’s holding in her district on July 23.
Confirmed employers who’ll be at the public event, Rep. McCarthy’s second job fair in the past year, include:
- Century 21 Stores
- Fidelis Care
- Hofstra University
- JPMorgan Chase
- Macy's Roosevelt Field
- NY Community Bank
- New York Life
- South Nassau Communities Hospital
The event will take place on 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 that Long Islanders have access to local jobs,” said McCarthy, who is focusing on measures and events that help small businesses, entrepreneurs, students and workers as the nation continues its path to economic recovery.
Rep. McCarthy held a career expo that focused on Long Island’s health care industry in December. It was her 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.
More than 20 vendors participated in the previous expo.
