ITHACA, N.Y.(WENY)-- The Cayuga Radio Group partnered with Oven Fresh Jobs on Thursday, October 9th, to bring local employers out for the day to meet community members who are seeking new and or better employment. The event was from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Hotel Ithaca, where anyone and everyone was welcomed to walk in and tour through the different job tables. 

Officials with the Cayuga Radio Group told WENY News that the local un-employment rate is drastically down and they want to help fix that in any way they can. All of the employers that showed up on Thursday are looking to hire as soon as possible, which is why being involved in these jobs fairs are so important and impactful. 

"These job fairs are important for businesses like us because we get exposure to a lot of different personalities and a lot of different backgrounds and in sales it's important to be able to connect with a variety of different people," says Emma Schenck, Regional Director of the Southern Tier for Metro Mattress. 

Even though the job fair was one day only, the employers who attended the event are still very much looking to hear from more of the community. If you would like to see what employers were at the job fair today, you can click here
