On Friday, June 2, hundreds of prospective employees attended the NYC Government Hiring Hall event at the College of Staten Island, CSI, Sports, and Recreation Center.
Staten Islanders were eager to explore alternative employment options and chat with 11 agency representatives. The more than 500 registered guests had a wide range of chances to investigate, with over 200 jobs—from traffic enforcement agents to paralegal assistants—made available for the taking. Selected applicants were able to gain a place in the city's workforce that same day thanks to the availability of on-the-spot interviews.
The Second Hiring Hall Event Of The Year By NYC Government
This is the island's second hiring hall event of the year; the first was on the North Shore. The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) and the Office of the Mayor of New York City will jointly manage the weekly hiring hall events until the end of June. 1,200 job offers have been made as a result of the hiring halls so far. The endeavor will have touched 15 communities overall, encompassing all five boroughs, by the end of the series.
Up until Mayor Eric Adams entered the gym, new hires excitedly told their friends about the news while other participants waited for their chance to talk with employers. Many gathered around the mayor for a photo, and others even expressed happiness at getting a job offer. Adams stood at the podium and addressed the crowd while pausing the photography.
