Unemployed? Need a job? Well look no further.
City Councilman Kenyatta Johnson will be holding a job fair on Friday with more than 50 employers at the Myers Recreation Center at 5803 Kingsessing Avenue from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Participating employers include Aviation Institute of Maintenance, Philadelphia Fire Department, the state Department of Transportation, Philadelphia Gas Works, Wal-Mart and more. The job fair is sponsored by the African American Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce.
"It's always been a priority of mine to focus on getting people jobs regardless of the economic outlook," Johnson said. "We must always focus on getting people gainful employment."
