Westchester Office of Economic Development to Host Construction Career Fair


Westchester County will be hosting a Construction Career Fair August 25, from 11 a.m- 2 p.m. at NY Power Authority, 123 Main Street, in White Plains.

Among the job opportunities available are for laborers, carpenters, plumbers, painters, drivers, electricians, sheetrockers, building maintenance, security and masonry.

“As existing properties embark on capital improvements and new developments break ground in Westchester, there are more jobs to be filled in the construction industry,” said Westchester County Executive George Latimer. “We hope that residents will use the Construction Career Fair to find new opportunities.”

Joan McDonald, Chairperson of the Westchester County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) and Director of Operations for Westchester County, said: “Through the Industrial Development Agency, Westchester County is working to support the renovation of existing office parks and buildings, corporate expansions and development of mixed-use projects. All of these projects require workers in a host of construction trades to ensure successful completion. To that end, there are many employment opportunities that residents can connect to during the upcoming Construction Career Fair.”

Bridget Gibbons, Westchester County Director of Economic Development, said: “We’re doing this in part to help rebuild and restore Westchester’s economy. The job fair provides opportunities to help residents of Westchester County and beyond to learn about careers in construction and the construction industry, including large projects that will leave an indelible mark on the landscape for generations to come.”

Parking for the Construction Career Fair is available in the “Hamilton Main” Garage located at 365 Hamilton Avenue or at the Galleria Mall. Attendees are asked to enter the NY Power Authority through the Hamilton Avenue entrance. A picture ID is required and attendees must sign in at the security desk. Attendees are also asked to please wear a mask.
