It was the Bronx Chamber of Commerce along with State Senator Jeff Klein and Assemblyman Mark Gjonaj who co-hosted a Bronx H.I.R.E. job fair at Bronx House today. There were dozens of different employers looking for various different people to come work for them including two branches of the Armed Forces. Recruiters from the Army and the Marines were on hand, and yes they said they offer jobs and career training for the future.
I spoke to several people who said different answers to me of this event. One woman said she was a secretary, and could not find such a job here. two men said that they had left their resumes with different companies, and are very hopeful of getting jobs with the companies they spoke to. I asked some more people hoping to find someone who was going to join the Army or Marines, but after about twenty minutes gave up on that idea. However I did get one maybe to the Armed Forces. Other employers on hand included Chase Bank, DJ Ambulette, New York Life, Bob Bider Plumbing, and even a table taking names to canvess for the 13th council district.
