If you’re looking for a job, 2018 is shaping up as an unprecedented year for opportunities on the Lower East Side. NYU Langone, Target, Regal Cinemas and Trader Joe’s are all staffing up as they prepare to open in the big Essex Crossing development. There are also two new hotels opening on the Bowery this year.
With these new opportunities in mind, the Lower East Side Employment Network is holding a Training Fair this coming Wednesday, March 14. It will take place between 6-8 p.m. at 301 Henry St. There will be guest speakers from Hotel Indigo and the Pod Hotel in Brooklyn. You’ll hear success stories from people who have used the employment services available from the members of the LES Employment Network. And career coaches will be on hand to offer guidance.

The Lower East Side Employment Network is holding a job training fair next Monday, November 24, from 6-8 p.m. It is taking place at the Rutgers Houses community center, 200 Madison St. Some of the occupations covered include: building maintenance, construction, healthcare, retail and hospitality. You’ll notice that one of the entities providing support for the event is Delancey Street Associates, the consortium building Essex Crossing on the former Seward Park urban renewal site.
Here’s an opportunity for anyone interested in becoming a bike mechanic.
Looking for a job in construction?
You’ve probably noticed more than a few idled construction sites across the neighborhood are showing signs of life, as the hobbled economy slowly recovers. With this reality in mind, there’s an information fair coming up later this week for anyone considering a career in the construction industry. It’s going to be held Thursday at 530pm, in the community room at the Rutgers Houses, 200 Madison Street. It’s not the place to find a job in the short-term, but rather an opportunity to learn about the skills needed and the resources available to prepare for employment in one of the city’s biggest fields. There will be presentations from Gouverneur Hospital, NYCHA, Building Works and the Port Authority. The fair is sponsored by Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and the LES Employment Network
