NEWARK, Del. – Seven hundred fifty job seekers came out for the final job fair of the year hosted by U.S. Senators Chris Coons and Tom Carper, and U.S. Representative John Carney in New Castle County. The fair brought more than 50 private and public entities to the Embassy Suites in Newark to meet candidates for over 600 open positions.

The New Castle County job fair was organized with the help of Brandywine Counseling and Career Services, and service and government employment agencies were also on hand to facilitate job-search skills workshops, career counseling, and resume reviews.

In 2013, the Delaware delegation hosted seven job fairs for more than 3,500 job seekers. Since 2011, the delegation has hosted 17 jobs fairs in Delaware, including four specifically for veterans.
