Working with the American Legion, the New Jersey Casino Control Commission has announced a casino career fair for April 19th that will focus on hiring individuals who are active military and reservists as well as National Guardsmen and their significant others. The Casino Control Commission building located on the Boardwalk will host the event.
The Commission is encouraging veterans to go to the following website to pre-register to attend: www.njcc.gov/vets. However, if a veteran is interested in applying for a position within the casino, they can walk-in to the job fair without having pre-registered.
Organizers have planned to offer refreshments to those attending and all casino operators of Atlantic City will be in attendance to hire individuals. The Ocean Resort Casino and Hard Rock Casino AC will be opening hopefully by summer and will be included in the operators on hand during the career fair. Free parking will be made available across the street from the Casino Control Commission for those in attendance.
With pre-registration, veterans can choose a preferred time to attend the casino career fair. Times range from 9am to 11am, 11am to 1pm and 1pm to 3pm. Once a time has been chosen, the attendee will be asked to fill in personal information including name, address, telephone number, etc.
On top of the casino operators in attendance, there will be other groups there to help veterans seeking employment. Additional groups to be at the casino career fair to offer support for veteran’s benefits and related matters include:
- New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs
- New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety
- US Department of Veterans Affairs
- New Jersey Parole Board
The following groups will be on hand to provide information in regard to casino jobs on offer.
