Businesses seeking to fill job openings totaling 1,000 in Orleans County

KNOWLESVILLE – The Orleans County Job Development will have two drive-through job fairs this month at the Orleans County 4-H Fairgrounds.

The job fairs will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 22 and Sept. 29. Each 10 businesses are expected to be available.

Orleans County currently has 1,009 job openings, said Kelly Kiebala, the Job Development director.

People interested in learning about or applying for local jobs will be directed to drive through a barn where the businesses will be stationed. Potential applicants should have resumes ready to provide to business representatives as they drive through, Kiebala said.

For those wishing to find out more details about a particular job or for those who businesses would like to interview on the spot, an additional barn will be designated for cars to be able to park so that further conversation and exchange of information can take place while remaining in the vehicle.

Masks and sanitizer will be available for any individuals attending who may not have their own, as masks will be required at all times.

Participating businesses will be posted on the Orleans County Job Development Facebook page as soon as they are confirmed. Pride Pak, Imagine Staffing and H.H. Dobbins have committed so far.

The first 10 businesses to request participation will be provided space. There is no cost to participate, but businesses will have to provide their own tables, chairs, etc., as well as enough staffing for both locations (so a minimum of two representatives).

All questions may be directed to Orleans County Job Development by calling 585-589-2772 or emailing ocjda@orleansny.com.
