A NYC Government Hiring Hall event was held at Monroe College offering onsite interviews and job opportunities.
The event is a partnership between the Department of Citywide Administrative Services and Councilmember Pierin Sanchez.
Seventeen city agencies were present, including the NYPD and the Department of Health and Human Services. Nearly 800 job seekers showed up with resumes.
"It's good for the community to know how to apply to city jobs because a lot of people don't have the resources,” said attendee Jeffery Reyes.
Mayor Eric Adams also made an appearance to discuss vacant jobs in the city.
“We have not had the number of people needed to fill those jobs. We wanted to reach out to the community,” he said.
The next NYC Government Hiring Hall event is scheduled to take place April 28 at York College in Queens.
