Fall Career Fairs Coming to a Library Near You!

By Annette M. RSS Mon, October 4, 2021

Have you experienced job disruption over the past year? Are you feeling stuck in a low-paying job or just wanting a new or better employment situation? Here’s your chance to take hold of your future—join us for our upcoming Fall Career Fairs!

Connect in-person with training programs that lead to careers in Philadelphia industries with family-sustaining wages.

Do you like working with your hands and are a visual thinker? Then a career in construction, skilled trades, or manufacturing might be for you. Or maybe you describe yourself as a compassionate and caring person who is detail-oriented, in which case you could consider a career in health care. Like to play video games? You wouldn’t be the first gamer to go into coding! There are thousands of careers out there, and with record job openings now, it is a great time to investigate new career options.

The following events will be held outdoors and are FREE—no registration required!
