Job Fair Friday in East Hampton

Job-seekers have been encouraged to attend an event Friday at the East Hampton Library presented by the Suffolk One-Stop Employment Center at which a range of businesses will meet prospective employees. No appointment is necessary, though the library has advised those planning to attend to take copies of their resumes and dress to impress. Hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Representatives from Aid to the Developmentally Disabled, Attentive Care, Bob’s Discount Furniture, Certified Laboratories, Core BTS, Home Care Solutions, Home Depot, Lowe's, People Ready, People’s United Bank, Ridgewells (an organizer of the U.S. Open to be held in June in Southampton), Statefarm Insurance, Suffolk Civil Service, Suffolk Federal Credit Union, and the United States Postal Service are scheduled to attend.

Free help with something to wear for job interviews is available by appointment from Career Couture, a county program run by the Employment Center, which can be phoned at 631-853-6769. The program provides business-proper clothing at no cost to men and women. It also accepts donations of clothes, shoes, and accessories.
