OGDENSBURG -- State Sen. Patty Ritchie’s St. Lawrence County Job Fair will be held Wednesday Sept. 18 from 1 to 4 p.m.

The free event will take place at the Ogdensburg Oddfellows Hall, located at 1111 Linden St. (corner of Route 37) and will feature more than 50 employers looking to hire.

“It’s often said that looking for a new job is just as much work as actually having a job,” Ritchie said. “That’s why it’s so important to have the connections, skills and tools to make that search not only easier but also more successful.”

Last year, more than 1,000 job-seekers attended Senator Ritchie’s job fairs held in St. Lawrence and Oswego Counties, which included nearly 100 employers, seminars on resume writing, interview skills and tips on landing a new job. As a result of the events, hundreds of attendees were able to find employment.

“I’m pleased to once again host my St. Lawrence County Job Fair, which will help match the hardworking and talented people of our region with companies and organizations looking for dedicated employees.”
