Labor Department's Spring Job Fair Series Begins April 12th in Manchester

For immediate release
March 10, 2008

WETHERSFIELD  – The State Labor Department’s ever-popular Connecticut Career Fairs series – an event that employers have come to rely on as their number one choice for recruitment – will return on April 12 with a job fair at Manchester Community College. Additional fairs in North Haven, Danielson, Fairfield and Cromwell have been scheduled for the spring in order to best meet the needs of companies and individuals throughout the state.

"Our Connecticut Career fair series has firmly established our reputation as the state's leading job fair organizer," noted State Labor Commissioner Patricia H. Mayfield. "This is the 13th year that the Labor Department – in partnership with Connecticut colleges and universities, chambers of commerce, and a number of community groups and organizations – has sponsored these successful events. Our career fairs now set the standard on the state's employment scene.” 

The Manchester Connecticut Career Fair will take place 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 12 with subsequent job fairs taking place 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the North Haven Holiday Inn on April 22, Quinebaug Valley Community College in Danielson on May 22, and Sacred Heart University in Fairfield on June 11. Details of the final event, to be held in Cromwell, have not yet been finalized.

“Agency employees and partnering organizations are dedicated to keeping Connecticut a great place to work and a competitive place to do business,” Mayfield noted.  “Our job fairs are an excellent way to support and succeed in this effort.”

“Employers hiring, or planning to do so in the near future will find our job fairs to be one of the best recruitment opportunities in the state,” claims job fair project director John Tirinzonie. "Last year more than 500 employers participated in these events and were extremely satisfied with the number of highly-skilled, educated candidates available to fill their job openings. Participating companies were able to realize big results, without spending a lot of advertising dollars and by investing only a few hours of their time.”

Employers can visit or contact the agency’s Job Development Unit at (860) 263-6280 to register for any of the job and career fairs.
