(Sewell, NJ) – Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger and Freeholder Heather Simmons announced that the 2019 Mega Job Fair will take place on Friday, March 29 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Rowan College at Gloucester County (RCGC) Gymnasium.

Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, "The Mega Job Fair is one of the largest job-seeking resources the county has to offer and it benefits both employers and applicants.  It is an excellent way for those looking for employment to  connect, network, and even interview on the spot with over one hundred employers in one location who are hiring."

Freeholder Heather Simmons, Liaison to the Department of Economic Development said, “The Mega Job Fair is a successful event that has introduced job seekers to a wide variety of companies from throughout the region over the past few years. Our only requirement for participating companies is that they have active job openings available. This helps job seekers make the most efficient use of their time, and has resulted in many of them successfully finding employment.” 

Attendees should make sure to dress in business appropriate clothing, bring copies of their resume, and be prepared for the possibility of an immediate interview.
