Employers and Job Seekers Connect at Monmouth County Job Fair

Job seekers from across the county poured into the Robert J. Collins Arena at Brookdale Community College on Sept. 19 for the annual Monmouth County Job Fair.

The event featured more than 140 area employers, including Coach, Family & Children’s Services, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, TD Bank and Afflac.

Attendees were able to connect directly with potential employers and take advantage of a host of available services including free resume-writing help.

Employers also took part in a comprehensive panel discussion on hiring, the interview process and how best to stand out as a applicant. Job seekers were able to ask questions about their own career goals and receive specific answers from high-level recruiters and hiring managers.

Members of Brookdale’s Center for Career Development were also on hand to talk about grant-funded professional training programs, workplace skills courses and other short-term enrichment opportunities available through the college. More information is available here.
