On Wednesday, October 14th, the City of New Haven and Yale-New Haven Hospital will be sponsoring a Job Expo featuring employment, job-training and educational opportunities for residents. I encourage residents to take advantage of this expo to learn about job duties, average pay rates and requirements for numerous jobs as well as to meet representatives from Yale, City and community agencies. The expo will be held at the New Haven Field House, 480 Sherman Parkway, from 1 to 6 p.m.
