DEARBORN, Mich. – ACCESS, the nation’s largest Arab American nonprofit, held its highly anticipated Autumn Job Fair at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, October 14, 2015. The event was open to the public and provided over 1,000 attendees with extensive insight into local employment opportunities.
The 2015 Autumn Job Fair featured more than 80 employers from the financial, health care, hospitality, government, transportation, service, and manufacturing sectors, and included a number of recognized corporate names, such as T.J. Maxx, Lowes, and Citizens Bank. As always, the Job Fair enabled attendees to mingle directly with hiring managers, who conducted on-site interviews with job seekers.
“At ACCESS, we know that by empowering our clients with the resources they need to lead prosperous and fulfilling lives, we are also empowering our community as a whole. By helping our clients better prepare themselves to enter the workforce, and by hosting events that connect job seekers and employers, we are helping our economy to get back on its feet,” said Najwa Hadous, ACCESS Employment and Training Department Director.
ACCESS holds two public Job Fairs per year, and has served tens of thousands of job seekers in the past decade. The 2015 Autumn Job Fair marks the second year that the event was hosted at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center. Previously, the event was held in ACCESS facilities, but several years of record breaking turnout from employers, clients, and community members forced the relocation to the much larger Ford Center.
