(September 28) — SportsRadio 1350 WOYK and the York County Economic Alliance (YCEA) will match up hiring companies and local career seekers next Thursday, October 5, at a Career Fair at PeoplesBank Park in downtown York.
More than 60 area companies have registered to take part in the Career Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. They range from staffing companies, package and delivery organizations, and nursing and rehabilitation corporations to financial service companies, food and beverage corporations, equipment providers, and many employers in between. Participating companies will fill the concourse of PeoplesBank Park and meet with career seekers to discuss full- and part-time opportunities.
“The talent and drive of the workforce of this community is a tremendous asset, and area companies are eager to tap into that further,” said YCEA President & CEO Kevin Schreiber. “We are looking forward to bringing them all together and helping grow these businesses and find great opportunities for members of our community.”
“It’s going to be a great event, and we are thrilled to have partnered with the YCEA to make this happen,” said WOYK General Manager Darrell Henry. “It’s a pleasure for us to help our listeners and neighbors start down exciting new career paths and to introduce our advertisers and other area companies to the newest members of their workforce.”
