“This is the second Career Fair held by the Hudson County Jaycees. The event is certain to be a big job-creator in Hudson County which has a snowball effect on the local economy. It is exhilarating to see how much impact a group of like-minded volunteers can have." said charter member and Assemblyman Ruben Ramos Jr.
