Local Business Owners, Job Seekers Invited to University’s Go Local Career and Vendor Fair April 28
The University is hosting a Career and Vendor Fair Thursday, April 28, as part of its “Go Local” economic initiative. The event will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Oncenter Convention Center ballroom, lower level, 800 S. State St., Syracuse.
Local business owners can meet with University purchasing managers to identify opportunities to see how their goods and services can supply the needs of the University. Individuals can attend to check out and apply for one of the hundreds of job openings at the University.
Those interested are asked to register for the event.
Go Local is Syracuse University’s commitment to leverage the economic power of the institution to improve regional economic inclusion through four key areas: building, hiring, buying and community connections.
The initiative seeks to broaden participation of local, minority, women and veteran-owned businesses in construction and service contracting opportunities; expand hiring of local residents, with a focus on neighborhoods in need of job opportunities; and increase economic growth and employment in Syracuse through the University’s purchasing activities.
The key areas are overseen by team leaders: Pete Sala, vice president and chief facilities officer (build); Karen Morrissey, associate vice president, Office of Human Resources (hire); Jean Gallipeau, comptroller (buy); and Cydney Johnson, vice president, community engagement and government relations (community).
The team leads invite the Central New York community to visit the Career and Vendor Fair to find out more about the many opportunities to partner with the University through providing goods and services and the variety of jobs available. The goal is to create more connections between the University and the community to further strengthen our local economy, increase employment and create more opportunities for local residents.
The event is also a great way for the campus community to meet local and diverse businesses and discuss opportunities in their units that they may have.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to reach out to their community networks to promote the April 28 event.
