Human services job fair in Scranton

The Lackawanna County Department of Human Services sponsored a job fair in conjunction with CareerLink on Courthouse Square.

SCRANTON, Pa. — Folks looking for a job in human services were able to come out and apply in downtown Scranton on Wednesday.

The Lackawanna County Department of Human Services sponsored a job fair in conjunction with CareerLink on Courthouse Square.

Youth and Family Services managers noticed that many of the social service agencies they partner with are having a hard time hiring and retaining employees during the pandemic.

"I've seen a few people who I've seen in the community, maybe at some other agencies, but we have had a few participants now that the rain is holding out, that are looking to get into the industry," said Kristin Wormuth, Lackawanna County Youth and Family Services.

About a dozen social service agencies took part in the job fair. They plan to have another one next spring here in Scranton.
