NEWARK, NJ – On Wednesday, October 19, the Frank R. Lautenberg Rail Station at Secaucus Junction will be used for more than connections between trains on 10 of New Jersey’s 11 commuter rail lines; it will provide connections between job seekers and prospective employers as NJ TRANSIT hosts its first major job fair at the station.

"This is an excellent opportunity for job seekers from virtually anywhere in New Jersey or Manhattan to link up with prospective employers under one roof," said Lynn Bowersox, NJ TRANSIT Assistant Executive Director of Corporate Communications and External Affairs. "At the crossroads of 10 commuter rail lines, Secaucus Junction is the ideal location for this event."

The event will take place from noon until 5 p.m., with a special preview hour for military personnel starting at 11 a.m. Admission is free, and business attire is suggested.

Prospective employers are encouraged to call NJ TRANSIT’s Job Junction Hotline at (973) 491-8436 for further information and registration. Additional information for job seekers will be available later this week at www.njtransit.com.
