WARREN COUNTY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Workforce expansion is the name of the game as Warren County communities plan in advance ahead of the summer season. As winter turns to spring, Queensbury, Lake George and Glens Falls are all set to host their own job fairs – building a workforce primed and ready to take on another summer season of tourism and big events in the North Country.
“Our job fairs are great opportunities for local businesses to get a head start on their summer hiring,” said Warren County Workforce Development Director Liza Ochsendorf. “Dozens of Lake George students secured summer employment at the 2021 and 2022 job fairs, and we anticipate more success this year, as the labor market remains tight. Please let us know as soon as possible if your business would like to be part of one or more of these hiring events.”
Job fairs are set for Queensbury High School, Lake George Junior-Senior High School, and Glens Falls High School. All three job fairs are exclusively for students at their respective schools. The goal is to create opportunities for local students to get employed quickly at summer jobs that will be a good fit for their skills, interests, and abilities.
