"We have many quality employers returning to the career fair again this year, allowing job-seekers to see first-hand the exciting employment opportunities available in the region and giving them the opportunity to make valuable face-to-face connections with a variety of businesses," said Christine Hoyt, director of programs and events for the Berkshire Chamber of Commerce. "We look forward to another great Career Fair."
