GWRA Participates In Job Fairs, Networking

The Greater Wilmington Radio Association (GWRA) joined area employers at three job fairs and a Networking Night during 2015.

On November 16 and April 10 hundreds of job-seekers attended a job fair sponsored by Delaware's Congressional delegation – U.S.  Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons and U.S. Representative John Carney.  Nearly 50 companies and organizations participated at both events.

The job fairs were held on the Stanton/George campus of Delaware Technical Community College in Newark.
