Andrea A. Haynes, Director of Economic Development, City of Mount Vernon said: “The City of Mount Vernon is always ready and willing to collaborate with the Career Center to help our residents get good paying jobs, and therefore support our local economy.”

Thom Kleiner, Executive Director, Westchester-Putnam Workforce Development Board added: “We encourage job seekers of all ages and skill levels to attend our job fairs which provide great opportunities to allow job seekers to embark on career paths that will lead to new skills and increased earnings. Our local economy is mutually dependent on employers willing to invest in our region and a skilled workforce ready to learn and grow.”

Emilia Gaston, Department of Social Services said, “We were so happy to be at this job fair meeting candidates inperson. I was able to meet more than 30 qualified people in just a couple of hours which is very encouraging.”
