Job Readiness Fair in Queens Today -- Thursday, Feb. 26

Dozens of government agencies, not-for-profits, unions and green collar job training programs – and even the New York Mets – will be on hand at a job readiness fair to recruit individuals for their various programs, as well as to assist job seekers with resume preparation and other job readiness activities.

The aim is to prepare individuals for employment and start a Southeast Queens database of registered job seekers in order to take advantage of Mayor Bloomberg’s and President Obama’s employment, public works, infrastructure spending programs.

Where: York College Performing Art Center Atrium
When: Thursday, February 26, from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm

Speaking of job fairs, we thought you'd enjoy this WWII-era video of women being trained for the world of work when men joined the armed forces, posted on flickr by Bobster1985. It's an excerpt from 'Campus on the March', a film made by the government. The women were expected to give the jobs back when the men returned.
