Greene County and Columbia-Greene Workforce NY is hosting a virtual job fair for hospitality businesses from Wednesday, May 19 to Wednesday, May 26. The virtual job fair is another tool that the County and Columbia-Greene Workforce NY is using to help employers and employees connect as the restrictions from the coronavirus lessen and businesses can once again fully operate.
Businesses with Greene County operations in hospitality, including the restaurant industry, are encouraged to participate. The virtual job fair will be using a new software package that Columbia-Greene Workforce NY recently obtained through grant funding. The virtual environment will allow job-seekers 24/7 access to virtual booths set up by employers that will describe their businesses and the opportunities available for job-seekers in those companies.
“As businesses begin to resume regular activities as more of the population is vaccinated and travel increases, there is a need for additional employees for tourism-related businesses,” said Deputy County Administrator Warren Hart. Particularly in the hospitality and restaurant industries, the coronavirus restrictions have had a major impact on employment and business operations. The virtual job fair is one way businesses can connect with employees and hopefully find matches, said Hart.
“With high unemployment rates and businesses in need of workers, the Workforce Office looks forward to connecting Greene County employers and workers safely and conveniently,” said Chris Nardone, Director of Columbia-Greene Workforce NY.
Plans are in the works for an expanded virtual job fair to include additional business sectors later in May and June.
