St. Frances Academy to host 6th MLK Day job fair Jan. 21

The St. Frances Academy Community Center will host its sixth Martin Luther King Day free job fair Jan. 21 in an effort to help ease the unemployment rate in Baltimore.

“The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Self-Help and Service” features several large-potential employers accepting applications, even from those with little work experience, limited education or criminal records, said Ralph E. Moore Jr., director of the community center at 501 E. Chase St.

The employers are from diverse fields and include Union Memorial Hospital and Humanim, a company serving people with developmental disabilities, Mr. Moore said.

The event will also feature free classes on resume writing, interview skills and job-readiness behaviors for the job seekers, he said.

The doors will open at 7:30 a.m. and a free continental breakfast will be provided, Mr. Moore said.

Job readiness classes will be held 8:30-11:45 a.m., free lunch will be served to all who attend at noon and the job fair will be held 1-4:30 p.m., he said.

Child care will be provided to all who attend, Mr. Moore said.
