Today Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., together with FreshDirect and the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation, hosted a job fair in the rotunda of the Bronx County Building, interviewing applicants for positions at FreshDirect’s current headquarters in Long Island City, Queens.
Prior to the job fair, the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation prescreened more than 200 applicants for positions with FreshDirect. More than 70 individuals moved on to the second round of interviews with the company.
“FreshDirect has made real commitments to our borough, and today’s job fair shows that they are ready to hire Bronxites years before they are located here,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. “This job fair is a great example of how we can work with businesses to make development work for everyone.”
