Labor Department to Hold Job Fairs

WETHERSFIELD — This fall, the Connecticut Department of Labor is offering opportunities to connect with employers who are hiring.

The Department will offer two career fairs in Cromwell and Danbury.

The first one on Sept. 13 at the Ethan Allen Hotel in Danbury, and the second on Oct. 29 at the Crowne Plaza in Cromwell.  The Danbury event will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., while the Cromwell fair is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

 “With more than 15 years of experience in providing job and career fair services to our residents, the Labor Department is recognized as a leader in offering well-organized events that attract quality companies looking to expand their workforce,” said Labor Commissioner Sharon M. Palmer.  “Each fall, our career fair series attracts thousands of jobseekers and hundreds of businesses looking to make an employment connection.  Since 1997 we have been dedicated to providing quality fairs, and earning the distinction of organizing some of this state’s most successful recruiting events.”

There is no cost for job seekers to attend, and parking is convenient and free.  Both fairs will include professional résumé writers from the Labor Department to assist with résumé development and employment workshops offering tips and information on finding a new job or changing careers.

Employer registration fee is $475 for the Danbury Career Fair and $275 for employers planning to attend the Middlesex Career Fair.  Employer registration includes an exhibit table, lunches for employers, company sign, program guide listing, radio, newspaper and Internet advertising, and advertisements at CTWorks and veterans’ centers, and local libraries and community organizations.

Employers interested in registering as an exhibitor at either the Danbury or Middlesex Career Fair can visit the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Job fair web site at www.ctjobfairs.com.
