More than 300 participate in Wilmington Job and Opportunity Fair

WILMINGTON – The lobby of the Wilmington City/County Building, today, was abuzz with job seekers and employers engaged in energetic exchanges over employment opportunities at the Job and Opportunity Fair.

More than 350 members registered to participate in the fair, hosted by Councilwoman Zanthia Oliver and Mayor Mike Purzycki’s office of Economic Development and featured nearly 40 organizations who came in search or employees or to share information on future opportunities.

“See, people want to work,” said Councilwoman Oliver, as she flipped through almost a dozen pages of hand-written names of people who signed in to participate in the fair.

“This was such an important event and yet another example of how the Wilmington City Council and office of Mayor Purzycki are working to serve our residents,” Oliver added. “I want to thank all of the employers for agreeing to take part if this opportunity and job fair and for their willingness to partner with the city around our employment initiatives.”

Mayor Purzycki agreed.

 

“We want to put people to work,” said Mayor Purzycki, “and this is an excellent opportunity for residents to connect with potential employers as well as organizations that can help attendees get the necessary training and skills to become productive members of the workforce.”
