Union Construction Job Opportunity Fair at Riverbank State Park

On August 21, 2012, more than 250 people packed the Riverbank State Park Cultural Center at a job fair for minority, women and local union construction workers.  The event, sponsored by Columbia University, SKANSKA USA and Empire State Development, provided job seekers with opportunities to meet contractors working on four Columbia University construction projects. Attendees were also able to speak with representatives from local unions and other local organizations to learn more about employment, certification and job training programs.
