Local Employers on Board for Job Fair

More than two dozen companies will be on hand to meet job seekers next month when the city holds its first local job fair, part of Mayor Arthur Vigeant’s push to get more Marlborough residents back to work.

Boston Scientific, Marlborough Hospital and Raytheon are among the employers who will be at the Marlborough Works Job Fair on Wednesday, June 13 from 6 to 8:30 p.m., according to the Marlborough Economic Development Corporation.

Vigeant said the idea for the fair was sparked by his conversations with businesses early in his term.

“It was very clear to me after several meetings I had with a number of well-known companies that they were looking to add to their workforce,” he said. “I thought a job fair was the best way to build a bridge between the companies in our city and the talented residents we have who are waiting for an opportunity to come their way. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

Registration is now open online but not required and the public is invited to attend. Attendees are urged to bring multiple copies of their resume.

The fair will be held at the Courtyard Marriot, 75 Felton St., Marlborough. 

Companies confirmed to be in attendance include: Sunovion Pharmaceuticals, DCU, Brookfield Renewable, Optos,Marlborough Saving Bank, St. Mary's Credit Union, Acosta, IQuum, Universal Door & Window, Ken's Foods Inc., Solar City, Home Depot, Citibank and Spectrum Microwave.
