WETHERSFIELD, The Department of Labor’s Connecticut Career Fair series is moving to the North Haven Holiday Inn on April 22 for the second event in the agency’s spring series.

Representatives from 60 companies will be on hand to meet with visitors during the 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. job fair.  Parking is plentiful and there is no admission fee. The Holiday Inn, at 201 Washington Ave., is located off I-91, by taking exit 12.

”Whether you’re an employer hoping to recruit new workers, or an individual thinking abut making a career move, our North Haven Connecticut Career Fair provides plenty of opportunities,” notes State Labor Commissioner Patricia H. Mayfield. “Employers will be provided with an excellent recruitment forum while jobseekers can meet face-to-face with companies eager to hire in a variety of fields.”

The career fair will also include Certified Professional Résumé Writers from the Connecticut Department of Labor.  Staff will review and critique résumés to help ensure they effectively showcase the skills of a jobseeker.

The agency’s mobile workforce center, the Career Express, will also be on hand, with Connecticut Department of Labor employees on board and ready to assist with employment needs. The van also has Internet access, allowing visitors to conduct online job searches and career exploration.
