On May 18, various organizations in York County, including the York County Economic Alliance and York County Reentry Coalition, sponsored the York Hiring Fair. It was held at WellSpan Park in York and is one of three in the York Hiring Fair Series.

The event was aimed towards reentrants in York looking for employment and many of the attendees came from the York Community Corrections Center (CCC). There were four reentrants from York CCC who did not have transportation, so CC2 Jaime Fishel took the extra step to transport these individuals from the facility to the fair.

Many employers such as WellSpan Health, Hollywood Casino York, and UPMC were present. Some of the employers were noted as “second chance” employers or able to hire and train individuals who primarily speak Spanish.

The event was a success as it provided a wide variety of resources to reentrants local to York who were seeking employment. For those who were unable to attend, there are two additional dates of the York Hiring Fair Series on July 27 and September 21.
