“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

2020 marked the highest unemployment rates New York State has seen in decades, making this a historically trying year for businesses and workers alike. In upholding the legacy of Dr. King, we are committed to keep moving forward and helping to serve New Yorkers now more than ever. With that in mind, the New York State Department of Labor and the New York State Office of General Services is proud to sponsor the Dr. King Career Fair once again!
