Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

ENDICOTT (WBNG) — The parking lots near En-Joie Golf Club were packed Wednesday afternoon, but not for anything golf related. Broome-Tioga Workforce was hosting their annual career fair at Our Lady of Good Counsel parish.

This is an event where businesses from around the area looking to hire can meet with folks looking for potential jobs. This event takes a few months to prepare for, especially lining up the businesses who are going to come.

For this year’s fair, roughly 50 organizations and businesses showed up, which only represents a small fraction of the available jobs in Broome and Tioga counties.

Attendees only needed to bring a resume, walking in and talking with any business representative they wanted to. Organizers say this event is one of the best ways for folks in search of a job to get a foot in the door.

One of Broome-Tioga Workforce’s missions is to prepare and set folks up with a successful career, and they are happy with how well this event fulfills that mission.

“Events like this are key to linking job seekers with employers, and we are just so happy to be able to play even a small part in that,” said Sara Liu, Executive Director of the Broome-Tioga Workforce.

After today, there will hopefully be plenty of interviews taking place and several local businesses, with new employees beginning their new careers all thanks to a conversation they had at this job fair.
