I attended this job fair. All I can say is what a waste of time and I left feeling that the economy is really worse then the general public is being led to assume. The first table encountered was for MetLife. I asked the lady manning that desk what positions were they looking to fill. They were there to speak to people regarding their current insurance or obtain information for giving someone a quote. Did no one who put this event together interview the scheduled prospective EMPLOYERS as to what they hoped to get out of this? Equally distressing were the folks from the Suffolk County Civil Service. They were there to guide people to the system of getting information to possibly get a civil servant job. You would not believe the intricate process one needs to go through to just ascertain if positions are available. The lady I spoke to said to not go to their site but to check with my local town offices as I would have a better chance to find employment avenues that way. In all I counted a total of 8 "employers" tables there. Mr. Raia should be ashamed that his name was associated with this. As for the library I applaud your efforts but please learn from this experience, which by the way had a decent turnout, to make sure that the scheduled prospective employers are truly just that prospective employers and not a Metlife just looking for clientel.

How many companies did you have the ability to speak to the day before or after the job fair? Is it more or less than 8?

The employment fair was really for Andy. He is up for re-election this year. Suddenly we get weekly updates on the Patch from Andy. How about some real mandate reform for schools, kids, and tax payers. C'mon Andy... walk the walk. Oh do you see that I am Free 2B... me.
