Carper, Coons, Carney to host job fair May 19 in Rehoboth Beach

Delawareans encouraged to come dressed for success with resumés in hand
Mar 21, 2014

To take advantage of the nation’s continuing economic recovery and to assist local businesses in finding employees as the summer tourism season approaches, U.S. Sen. Tom Carper and Sen. Chris Coons and U.S. Rep. John Carney announced they will host a job fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday, May 19, at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center, 229 Rehoboth Ave., for those seeking jobs. This will be the third job fair hosted by the delegation this year.

Interested companies seeking to fill positions can contact Coons’ office at 302-573-6345 or email workshop@coons.senate.gov. Businesses will be on hand at the fair to meet potential new employees, and only employers with positions to fill will be permitted to attend. Delawareans are encouraged to come dressed for success with resumés in hand.

“This job fair in Sussex County is an outstanding opportunity for all Delawareans, but particularly for those downstate searching for jobs to connect with prospective employers,” Carper said. “I encourage all looking to enter the workforce to attend this job fair and meet the dozens of companies looking to hire Delawareans. At every job fair I attend, I talk to employers who are hungry for qualified workers and ready to hire now. Fostering a nourishing environment for job creation in Delaware and across the country continues to be one of my top priorities.”

“The economy is slowly improving, but there are still far too many Delawareans struggling to find jobs to support themselves and their families,” Carney said. “We’ve hosted two job fairs already this year and connected thousands of skilled job seekers with employers looking to hire. We plan to build on this success in Rehoboth and help more Delawareans find job opportunities.”

For more information on how to participate as an employer or job seeker, call Coons’ office at 302-573-6345, or email workshop@coons.senate.gov. Preregistration is not required.
