In an effort to bring more job opportunities to the residents of Reading, state Rep. Manny Guzman, D-Berks, will host a job fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, May 10.
The fair will showcase more than 50 organizations searching for qualified candidates to fill a wide range of open positions.
Guzman explains that the event, which comes as a collaboration with Reading Mayor Eddie Moran, is one of the highlights of his work agenda in the district.
“I am glad to bring back this annual event to the residents in the 127th Legislative District,” Guzman said. “I know how important is to find a job, but I also know that this search comes full of challenges. I want to make this journey easier for my constituents and improve their chances to get a job.
“I want to point out that it does not matter the level of education of the applicants, there will be an opportunity for everyone. The organizations participating are diverse. We will see employers like Tower Health and Penn State Health offering jobs in the medical field, but also J.P Mascaro & Sons, a waste management company, and East Penn Deka,” Guzman added.
Guzman said the job fair will offer the opportunity to get hired on the spot, but also the chance to connect with institutions, get informational materials and promotional merchandise.
“Among other companies, Helping Harvest will be there to educate about their incredible work and will distribute goody bags with fresh produce,” Guzman said.
The job fair will be held at 445 Penn St. (indoors and outdoors). Guzman and his staff will be there to assist with state-related questions.
