Rockaway Development and Revitalization Corporation hosted its Annual Job Fair on Thursday, October 16 at 1920 Mott Avenue. More than 100 job seekers completed applications and were interviewed on-site. "One of the benefits of our Job Fair is that we bring our employment partners to the Rockaways. This eases many of our job seekers' anxiety about traveling into an unfamiliar environment, which often affects their ability to interview well," said RDRC's executive director, Kevin Alexander. "Another contributing factor is the ongoing support RDRC staff is to provide to anxious job seekers."

Participating companies included New York Health Care, Premier Health Care, FEDEX, Rescue One, Allied Barton and Non-Traditional Employment for Women (NEW).
