Thank you to all the employers who participated in the Fridley Job Fair in April. It is wonderful to see Fridley employers continuing a tradition of success here and also find adequate staff to continue that success.
70% of the employers said they filled the position they were hiring for.
Almost 95% of the employers even if they did not fill their position, found the job fair successful.
90% of the employers that attended this year said they would attend again next year.
Because of the help from the Anoka County MN Workforce Center and their advertisements through DEED, we had Job Seekers attend from all over the metro area.
The City of Fridley had over 30 resumes they took in for different positions.
