ORANGE COUNTY, NC (February 6, 2015)—The Orange County Department of Social Services (DSS) encourages members of the community to print their resume, dress for success and prepare to make a positive impression with more than 30 potential employers planning to participate in an upcoming Job and Resource Fair.


The event will take place from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25, at the Department of Social Services located at 113 Mayo Street in Hillsborough.


This event is an excellent opportunity for employers to meet potential employees with a variety of skill sets, from experienced professionals to talented entry level individuals. Orange County’s goal is to provide a Job Fair where each employer leaves with several possible candidates for hire.


The Job and Resource Fair will be open to the public and door prizes will be awarded. Please visit for assistance with resume building, interview tips and a host of other useful job search topics.


This marks the fourth community Job Fair sponsored by DSS.  During the September 2014 event, more than 50 employers served 300 residents who were seeking employment opportunities.  Several people were employed as a result of the job fair experience.


Employers who are interested in participating in the Job Fair need to reserve their space now. Booth space, parking, private offices to conduct interviews, Internet access, and lunch will be provided at no charge. Applicants will have access to a computer lab to complete online applications. A federal tax incentives seminar will be hosted for hiring managers from 8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. and will include a continental breakfast.


For more information or to reserve a booth, please call John Cooley at 919.245.2821 or Randy Haynes at 919.245.4343.
