Job fair organized by Sepulveda draws more than a thousand job seekers
The lines were long and hopes high at a local job fair organized by Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda that recently drew up to 1,200 job seekers and 72 potential employers from government and private agencies and organizations, retailers, hospitals and health care organizations, educational institutions, general contractors and others.
The job fair, held Wednesday, April 5 at the Sotomayor Community Center in Soundview, was co-sponsored by state Senator Ruben Diaz and Assemblyman Marcos Crespo.
“I frankly was amazed at the turnout, which speaks volumes about the current state of the economy,” said Sepulveda. “I wish the best for all those who attended.”
The Assemblyman said he expects to organize a similar job fair within the next few months.
