PACCLOGO

Presented by the Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce’s Employment Outreach Program, the 5th Annual Job Fair will be held on Wednesday, May 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, 707 Route 46 East, Parsippany. Last year, over 500 potential job seekers and 25 hiring organizations attended this annual event.

This year’s scheduled attendees included ADP, Atlantic Health Care, Care One, Coca Cola Refreshments, Liberty Mutual, Prudential, Provident Bank, Zoomus, Rite Aid, and Tiffany & Company.  A complete list of attending companies will be available at employmentoutreach.org on Sunday, April 20.

“Our Job Fair has a reputation for the last four years in providing outstanding service to our residents, businesses, and volunteers in the Parsippany Area at No Charge.  This is another example on how we strive to give back to our community!” stated Chamber President and Job Fair Chair Robert J. Peluso.  The job fair is a great opportunity for job seekers to connect with area employers while gaining new skills through the event’s free workforce development seminar. However, there is much more to the event. The job fair is part of the Chamber’s Employment Outreach Program which is the Chamber’s unique approach to drive community and economic growth in the Greater Parsippany Area through providing employers with a high quality workforce. However, the success of the Job Fair and Employment Outreach Program, which annually assists over 2500 job seekers and 75 area employers, demonstrates the success of Chamber President and Job Fair Chair Robert J. Peluso’s strategic partnership initiative.

In 2009, led by Peluso, the Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce began focusing on creating strategic partnerships with other community based organizations. To date the Chamber has over eight organizations involved, which also assists in the Annual Job Fair. “A high quality workforce creates an advantage in attracting and retaining top companies to the Parsippany Area. We provide comprehensive services, including: a job posting board, quarterly newsletters (Workforce Morris), an active website (employmentoutreach.org), internship opportunities, scholarship programs, training events, career counseling, and workforce development opportunities for students. All of these services are provided free of charge by the self-funded and volunteer based organization, however we could not make this program a success without our dedicated partner organizations,” stated Chamber President Robert J. Peluso. For more information on the Employment Outreach Program and the job fair, please visit employmentoutreach.org.
