CLEVELAND: The Cleveland Airport System (CAS) and city Mayor Frank Jackson will host a public networking event Thursday called Synergy 2013.

The public job fair will take place from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. at the Cleveland Convention Center, Ballrooms B and C. Admission is free and open to the public.

Synergy 2013 is designed to give attendees direct access to available jobs with organizations that do business at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE), at Burke Lakefront Airport (BKL) and in the Cleveland area.

According to organizers, experts will also be available to provide one-on-one assistance with resume writing, interviewing and networking skills.

Vendors such as Greater Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA), City of Cleveland Human Resources Department and Civil Service Department, AIRMALL CLE and HMSHost will be present along with other regional employers.

Attendees will also have an opportunity to hear about upcoming job opportunities at CLE and BKL with some of the area’s largest government agencies.

“In years past, Synergy has been about creating networking opportunities for large and small-business owners with established business owners as well as educating them on the city’s procurement process,” said airport Director Ricky Smith. “This year, we will create a new synergy between employers and job seekers and provide the tools needed for those seeking employment.”

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is Ohio’s leading air service gateway, offering more than 240 daily departures to 70 nonstop destinations.
