Coney Island businesses hold summer job fair

Coney Island businesses gathered today for a job fair that offered hundreds of positions to residents.

Coney Island staples such as Nathan's and the Cyclone are looking for almost 300 people to keep business running through the summer months.

Today's job fair was just one of three screenings where Brooklyn residents can learn about the opportunities and sign up for interviews.

Last year, 200 jobs were available at the job fair and half of the positions were filled by people living right in the neighborhood.
