Resorts World New York City has some pretty exciting news in store for locals who are looking for work or are interested in changing career courses. For the first time since the unprecedented situation in 2020, the Queens casino property will host its annual job fair. It will be this week and will feature 60 different employers from the tri-state area.
Due to health and safety protocols in 2020 and in 2021 the Genting Americas gaming property was unable to host its annual event in person. But thanks to the ease in restrictions this year, the casino is ready to welcome everyone who is looking for a career. Candidates are advised to bring their resumes and dress in business attire.
The job fair will be hosted this week on Friday, November 18, 2022, and it will run from 10 a.m. to around 2 p.m. The casino informed that it will be hosted by state Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. in partnership with the Queens Chamber of Commerce. There will also be free parking for job seekers, in the lot located directly across the property’s entrance. The venue is also wheelchair accessible.
Some of the organizations that will be present at the fair include, the NYC Health + Hospitals, Good Temps, U.S. Army, World Financial Group, Charter Spectrum, Con Edison, NY Helmets to Hardhats and more. More information about the event or the full list of vendors can be found by applicants by contacting the Senator’s office at (718) 738-1111.
Mr. Addabbo said that as the state continues to recover from the unfortunate events of 2020, many people are still seeking work. Combined with many companies that are also looking for employees, the event is a great way to match both sides. He is hopeful that by bringing job seekers and employers he will be able to create a stronger workforce and economy.
Resorts World NYC has also informed the public that it will host a Career Day Friday at 11:30 a.m. for college students. Via the initiative, students can familiarize themselves with the industry, and learn about operations, available positions, academic scholarships and more. Interested students can request attendance by contacting [email protected].
Soon the Queens casino establishment may have to look for additional staff as it is one of the front-runners for one of the three downstate casino licenses. CGS-CIMB Research predicts that the casino has a strong chance of getting one. If approved, the property will be able to expand its operations and add live table games to its amenities and therefore provide more well-paid positions.
Earlier this week, Resorts World New York City revealed that some of its team members from the state have participated in this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Also, as a sign of support the gaming venue has also donated US$5,000 as well as a hefty US$1,800 donation raised by its staff to the American Cancer Society.
