The Rochester Americans announced today that the team has partnered with Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, Entercom Rochester and WROC-TV News 8 to once again host a Downtown Career Fair on Friday, Apr. 7 at The Blue Cross Arena from 12 noon to 3:00 p.m.
The Downtown Career Fair provides a unique opportunity for local job seekers to connect with Rochester-area businesses that are currently hiring. The event will be followed by a 7:05 p.m. game between the Amerks and Hershey Bears.
“Rochester Chamber and our RBA Staffing division are pleased to team up with the Rochester Americans to host another Downtown Career Fair,” said Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bob Duffy. “As I visit Rochester Chamber members across the nine-county Finger Lakes region that we serve, a common theme that I hear is the difficulty that employers have in finding talent. There is not a lack of jobs, but a lack of qualified workers ready and willing to fill them. The Downtown Career Fair gives both employers and job seekers a one-stop experience to connect and make mutually beneficial matches.”
Businesses can reserve their spot at the Downtown Career Fair for $300 ($150 for 501c-3 non-profit organizations) by visiting www.amerks.com/careerfair. The cost includes one table, two free parking spots for the day in the Civic Center Garage, 20 tickets to the Amerks game to follow and complimentary refreshments and snacks. Greater Rochester Chamber members can purchase their booth space for $250.
Job seeker registration for the event is free and includes one ticket voucher to the Amerks game that night and the opportunity to network with growing companies that have immediate job openings. Job seekers must register in advance to attend the free event by visiting www.amerks.com/jobseeker.
Registration for the event closes on Friday, Mar. 31.
“We’re excited to have the opportunity to host a second Downtown Career Fair this season,” said Amerks Vice President of Business Operations Rob Kopacz. “Since its inception, the Career Fair has welcomed over 2,500 job seekers and has averaged 60 local businesses at each event and it continues to grow each year. We had tremendous success with the first event we hosted back in November and we welcome the opportunity to again work alongside Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce as well as Entercom Rochester and WROC-TV News 8 to make this one even better.”
