We will register businesses until we are completely out of space. To register, contact Kathryn Ruth at the Pittsfield Town Office (487-3136) or townmanager@pittsfield.org

For Resource Providers, contact Dana Hamilton, Ken-Som Project Coordinator at 1-800-542-8227, ext. 2533 or danah@kvcap.org

This job fair is open to all interested job seekers. This is your chance to actually talk to employers and employment agencies rather than sending an application in the mail or filing on-line. This is a great opportunity to meet many employers all at once in a few hours in one location rather than traveling from location to location, calling on the phone or e-mailing a company. Please make sure to take advantage of this great opportunity!
