Monroe Welcomes City Agencies to the Bronx Campus for Hiring Hall
While King Hall on the Bronx campus is usually a bit quiet on Saturdays, that was certainly not the case today.
Hundreds and hundreds of local residents turned out with resumes in hand for a Hiring Hall being held by the City's Department of Citywide Administrative Services. The event was held from 10:00 am and 3:00 pm.
Nearly 20 city agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services and the NYPD, were on hand to speak with job candidates about their hiring needs and to conduct job interviews with promising candidates.
Job offers were extended to many job-seekers on the spot, which certainly made the Hiring Hall a great success for the City and their new employees alike.
Today's Hiring Hall was designed to help the City address a reported 8% vacancy rate across municipal jobs. Similar Hiring Halls are being held across all boroughs in response.
Dawn Pinnock, the Commissioner for the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services, spoke with many job-seekers this afternoon, encouraging them to speak with the agencies in attendance about their career aspirations and possible roles that may be of interest.
Mayor Eric Adams was also on hand to address the attendees and thank them for their interest in contributing to the City's work and service to its residents and visitors. He also spoke of the importance of ensuring that the City's employment roster reflects the great diversity of the City itself, noting that was a primary driver behind the multi-borough recruitment tour.
Monroe was proud to once again open its doors in friendship and partnership to the City, especially because of the great community advantage. Monroe has been part of the Bronx for 90 years and has a strong track record of offering and supporting initiatives that benefit our neighbors and help to build a stronger, better Bronx.
