Legislator Kevan Abrahams Hosts Ninth Annual ‘Bridge to Employment’ Online Job Fair Through January 2021

Nassau County and the region is continuing to grapple with a sharp increase in unemployment and economic uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help residents navigate this daunting economic landscape, Nassau County Legislator Kevan Abrahams (D – Freeport) has built a more direct bridge between job seekers and employers than ever before to assist with employment opportunities through his ninth annual Job Fair.

Through January 2021, Legislator Abrahams’ online job fair will provide applicants the opportunity to contact employers directly and explore employment and career opportunities and available jobs from their computer, smartphone or tablet. The job fair was reinvented as a remote, online event in accordance with public health protocols aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19. 

Job seekers can visit www.nassaucountyny.gov/LD1, scroll down to “Click Here to Search for a Job” and open the link to peruse a user-friendly digital list of employers, available jobs, resources and support services. Through this portal, job seekers can connect directly with employers and inquire about employment opportunities and interviews by clicking on individual web links.

“At a time when so many of our neighbors are facing financial hardship as a result of the pandemic and searching for jobs during this period of turmoil, efforts to connect residents with job training, employment opportunities and other important resources are more essential than ever,” Legislator Abrahams said. “I hope that job seekers and businesses alike will take full advantage of this innovative, COVID-safe approach to accelerating our region’s recovery and stimulating local economic activity.”

To register for the job fair, interested employers and prospective employees can visit www.nassaucountyny.gov/LD1. For additional information, contact Legislator Abrahams’ office at 516-571-2455 or LD1-events@nassaucountyny.gov.
