More than 40 employers and agencies that help job seekers will gather at Finger Lakes Community College on Thursday for the first “Why I Love the Finger Lakes” Career Expo.

The expo is slated from 1 to 4 p.m. at the main campus in Canandaigua. Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy is scheduled to give a keynote address following an introduction by FLCC president Barbara Risser at 1 p.m. 

Finger Lakes-area employers in fields such as health care, retail, telecommunications and viticulture are to meet with and collect resumes from prospective workers. Some interviews may be conducted on site.

The expo will include workshops focused on hiring trends in health care and advanced manufacturing, as well as tips for those looking to enter the workforce or change careers.

FLCC Career Services and the Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board are co-sponsors of the expo. It is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.fingerlakesworks.com.
