MEDINA – The Village of Medina in collaboration with the Orleans County Job Development Agency will host the premiere Medina Area Job Fair on Thursday, May 19, from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Medina United Methodist Church (former Apple Grove), 11004 West Center Street Ext, in Medina.

The facility has plenty of space for parking in the adjacent lot, and transportation is also available through the Orleans Transit Service’s Dial-a-Ride by calling at least 24 hours in advance to 585-589-0707.

Participants include the newest addition to the Medina area, Pride Pak, along with many others such as ATB Staffing, Brunner, Child Care Resource & Referral (Community Action), Genesee Community College, Imagine Staffing, Iroquois Job Corps, Orchard Manor, Orleans County Adult Learning Services (OCALS), Orleans County Job Development’s Youth/Young Adult Employment Program, Orleans Transit Service, P-Raising Kids, Pathstone, Takeform, and more.

“We wanted to highlight the import of employment in the Medina area and the positive community we have here for living, working and playing, especially given the new businesses we are welcoming here such as Pride Pak along with the robust existing corporate base,” said Mayor Michael Sidari.

The Orleans County Job Development Agency is assisting with the event.

“The more opportunities we can facilitate by partnering with other agencies, both in the public and private sector, the better we are able to help both job seekers to find employment and businesses to develop a strong workforce, enhancing the economic vibrancy of Orleans County,” said Kelly Kiebala, director of Job Development.

Those seeking employment are invited to attend. They should bring a current resume and come dressed for success. Assistance with resume development, application completion and/or interview skills will be available on site by OC Job Development counselors.
