The job fair will showcase employers representing sectors, including banking, healthcare, and telecommunications. Brian Conybeare is special advisor to Governor Andrew Cuomo for the New NY Bridge project, that is, the replacement Tappan Zee Bridge, and he will discuss the economic benefits of the bridge project as well as employment opportunities for residents and businesses throughout the Hudson Valley. The job fair runs from 11 till 3.
