Positions are posted online at www.employment.pa.gov and applicants are encouraged to submit their application through the website whether they can attend or not attend the job fairs. Applicants do not have to live in the county for the job they are applying for and can attend any of the job fair locations.
If for any reason an applicant cannot complete an application on the website before the scheduled job fairs, staff with laptops will be available at all four job fairs to help interested participants navigate the electronic application system.
For positions that require a Commercial Driver’s License, PennDOT will conduct on-the-spot interviews for CDL operators. Driving tests will also be administered the same day, if available. CDL operators should bring their current driver’s license and medical examiner certificate to the job fair. Requirements for a CDL will be posted on the job description on the employment website.
