Looking for a job? If so, you should check out State Rep. W. Curtis Thomas’ annual Private Sector Job Fair being held 10:00AM to 2:00PM, Friday, October 25 at the Columbia YMCA North, 1400 N. Broad Street. 

A wide range of private sector employers offering jobs and training opportunities will participate.  Confirmed employers include the Urban League of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA, Northeast Treatment Centers, Fresh Grocer, Bottom Dollar Foods, Sugar House Casino, Harrah’s Philadelphia, IKEA, Target, DeVry University, Keller Graduate School of Management, North Philadelphia Health System, Spring Garden Senior Center,  Liquor Control Board Enforcement Unit, Comcast Corporation, SafeLink Wireless, Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry, Casmir Care Services, Wells Fargo and Genius Enterprises among others.   

Thomas sponsors two job fairs annually – one with private sector employers and one with public sector employers.  “This is our annual private sector job fair. Many retail employers are looking to hire for the upcoming holiday season.  Statistics on unemployed and underemployed residents in Philadelphia continue to be at a record high, especially in the 181st Legislative District” said Thomas.  “However, we have a wealth of qualified, skilled and talented people who are willing and able to add value to any company or organization.”


As always, participants should come dressed in business attire and bring plenty of resumes. No copying will be available onsite.  Free parking is available at Mt. Olive Holy Temple Church’s parking lot at Broad & Jefferson Streets.  For more information call Natalie Davis at 215/560-3261.
