Job Fair Planned in Sterling Saturday

Supervisor Koran T. Saines (D-Sterling) will host his second annual Spring Job Fair on Saturday, May 6. Saines plans to feature more than 45 employers from varying industries throughout the county including technology, trade and construction, healthcare, hospitality and food service, retail, transportation and service.

Employers participating in this year’s fair include Loudoun County Public Schools; the Loudoun County’s Sheriff’s Office and Departments of Fire and Rescue and Parks, Recreation and Community Services; the U.S. Army; Washington Gas; NOVA Parks; Wegmans Food Markets; and B.F. Saul Company.

“If you are looking for a job closer to your home, a change of career, or an internship, don’t miss out on May sixth,” Saines said. “Last year, more than 200 members of the public attended and surprisingly there were more job opportunities than there were attendees.”

Training Futures, a program of Northern Virginia Family Service that provides training to low-income individuals to gain professional, higher-wage office jobs, will also have a table at the fair along with Loudoun’s Workforce Resource Center, which provides resume preparation help and career development workshops and other resources to help residents obtain jobs.

The job fair runs from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m at Park View High School, which is located at 400 West Laurel Ave in Sterling.
