RochesterWorks! Annual Career Conference Reaches New Heights.
Written by, Corey Nash
ROCHESTER, NY- RochesterWorks! successfully hosted more than 1,000 job seekers at the R. Thomas Flynn Campus Center at Monroe Community College on Friday January 10th. Job seekers had the opportunity to meet with 74 businesses, all seeking to fill verified open positions in their company. The Career Conference and Job Fair, in its 12th year, has progressed tremendously over the years even with unemployment being the lowest it’s been since 1969. This event demonstrates that we have an active pool of wiling candidates in our area.
Peter Pecor, Executive Director of RochesterWorks, commented on the evolution of the event over the years.
“We at RochesterWorks are pleased with the success of our 12th Annual Career Conference and Job Fair as communicated directly to us from a number of jobseeker participants and feedback from the represented employers. Over 1,000 jobseekers attended this event and the variety of employment opportunities is a direct reflection of the positive economic activity in our community across all business sectors.”
RochesterWorks! has been known over the years to host a wide range of companies hiring in a variety of fields. This event annually has become one of the prime events for recruitment and its benefits can be seen by the ever-growing responses received by our local employers.
Pecor further commented, “Our business community welcomes events like this as an important tool for identifying available talent. We had over 70 employers represented and unfortunately had a waiting list of over 30 more employers who could not be accommodated. RochesterWorks will continue to work with all of our local employers assisting them in their ongoing recruitments.”
In addition to the businesses that participate, partners in this annual event include the County of Monroe, New York State Department of Labor, ACCES-VR, and Monroe Community College.
