(Lewes, DE) Today, Delaware River and Bay Authority officials scheduled a job fair to take place inside the Lewes Terminal on Thursday, July 25, 2013. The purpose of the job fair, which will take place between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., is to attract qualified people to apply for seasonal/casual positions in the food and retail department. During the busy summer and fall seasons, the Ferry hires more than 250 seasonal employees.
“We’re excited to hold this job fair at our Lewes facility,” said Heath Gehrke, Director of Ferry Operations. “The Authority’s a community-oriented employer and this event will provide a great opportunity for prospective candidates to speak with our hiring managers and apply onsite. Whether on land or aboard a vessel, you can’t beat a summer job at the Cape May – Lewes Ferry.”
What:      A job fair will be held inside the sun room of the Lewes ferry terminal. A welcome table with job postings will be set up and candidates will be directed to meet with hiring managers to be interviewed on the spot. Candidates are subject to a background check and will be able to apply on-line.
Where:    Inside the Lewes Ferry Terminal, 43 Cape Henlopen Drive, Lewes, DE.
When:     Thursday, July 25, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Why:       The Cape May – Lewes Ferry has nearly 25 seasonal positions currently available, including line cooks, food workers, retail clerks, warehouse workers, cashiers, and some supervisory positions.  The ferry service also has job opportunities for cashiers to work aboard the vessels.   The Authority is actively seeking local residents to fill these vacancies at the Cape May – Lewes Ferry.   The Authority anticipates a good turnout for this special job fair and looks forward to making this year’s pilot an annual event.
