The Eagle-Tribune

---- — SALEM, N.H. — The Salem Job Fair, sponsored by New Hampshire Employment Security, will be on Tuesday, April 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Mount Washington College at 11 Manor Parkway. It will offer opportunities for job-seekers interested in entry-level, as well as skilled or professional positions.

“We want people in New Hampshire who are looking for work to know that there are jobs available. This job fair will include employers from one end of the state to the other that either have job openings today or anticipate having openings in the near future,” NHES Commissioner George Copadis said. “We encourage people to come prepared to interview for these roles. We are always striving to support our unemployed or underemployed residents to obtain that next good job so that they can better support their families and be active in their local communities. People that are looking for work need opportunities like this to interact with organizations that are seeking to fill positions. We are excited to help make these connections.”
