NH Employment Security (NHES) is hosting the Manchester Job & Resource Fair on June 18th from 10:00-2:00 at the St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral located at 650 Hanover Street, Manchester NH. Admission is free.
“Events like the Manchester Job Fair are critical to our efforts to keep our economy moving forward and support a strong middle class, connecting New Hampshire’s talented workers with employers looking to hire and helping keep our unemployment rate nearly two points below the national average,” Governor Maggie Hassan said. “I want to thank New Hampshire Employment Security and participating employers for helping to build a stronger, more innovative New Hampshire.”
“The job fair is a great opportunity for employers to gain access to a local ready and willing workforce,” states New Hampshire Employment Security Commissioner George Copadis. “Having employees from the communities that you serve strengthens your business and makes our communities stronger. We encourage employers to attend and hope anyone looking for employment will take advantage of this free event.”
The Manchester Job & Resource Fair is an opportunity for job seekers to meet face-to-face with a variety of employers, develop a network of professional contacts and have an opportunity to ask employers questions about their specific organization or industry. New Hampshire continues to support and provide the necessary tools to our unemployed or underemployed residents to secure that next good job.
More than 75 New Hampshire businesses with immediate job openings and future positions will be on hand to speak and interview candidates. The career fields represented by the companies that have registered for this hiring event include manufacturing, staffing, retail, government, education, health care, computers and technology, industrial, among others.
