HARRISBURG– State Rep. Frank Farina, D-Lackawanna/Wayne, will host his Employ our Veterans Job Fair from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, May 23 at Fiorelli’s Catering, 1501 Main St., Peckville.
The event will bring employers face to face with local veterans who are looking for meaningful employment.
"I am looking for employers who will be hiring great workers with high integrity who have been well-trained in teamwork and achieving goals," Farina said. "Honorably discharged veterans are excellent choices for many positions.
"A new report from Senator Robert Casey’s Joint Economic Committee reports that more than one in 10 Pennsylvanians is a veteran, and their current unemployment rate is 9 percent. This is a perfect opportunity for companies looking to hire qualified individuals to meet high-caliber prospective employees."
This event is still in its planning phase and Farina is actively recruiting potential employers to be represented during the job fair.
Parties interested in reserving a booth should email dvalvano@pahouse.net with the subject line "Farina Veterans Job Fair", or call 876-1111.
