Social Services prepares for town Career Fair

On the hunt for a job? Join the Greenwich Department of Social Services (GDSS) for the town’s second Career Fair to be held at Town Hall on Monday, May 13, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

GDSS is partnering with three local agencies  — Goodwill, Family Centers and Jewish Family Services — for the event which will feature major employers with current job openings. Some of the employers slated to attend include The Hyatt Hotel, New York Life, Sodexo, Dattco, The University of Bridgeport and the town of Greenwich.

Those interested are urged to register in advance by visiting the Goodwill website at, or by calling 203-581-5040 and registering for the Greenwich Career Fair. Advance registration is essential.

Goodwill, Family Centers, and Jewish Family services all provide vocational and employment services to members of the community and work collaboratively with GDSS to assist their clients as well. All of these agencies are part of the Greenwich WorkForce Development Group, which was initiated by GDSS and brings together employment and vocational training agencies to organize and coordinate efforts to improve employment opportunities for residents.

The Greenwich Department of Social Services assists clients in strengthening their employment skills by referral to vocational training programs and offering financial assistance with defraying the cost of tuition, transportation and child care.

“We are delighted to be able to collaborate with Goodwill, Family Centers and Jewish Family Services on this, our second Greenwich Career Fair,” said Alan Barry, department commissioner. “Putting job seekers in touch with employers helps to fulfill our mission to encourage Social Services clients to become self-sufficient.”

Those interested should note that parking near Town Hall is limited and use of public transportation is encouraged.
