Nano Job Fair Sponsored by Office of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, NYS Labor Dept, and NanoCollege Brings Hundreds to CNSE: Targeted outreach attracts women, veterans and minority candidates to participate in event designed to help fill more than 300 current and future openings at CN

Albany, NY | Posted on February 2nd, 2013

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said, "The rapid growth of New York's world-class nanotechnology industry is creating new opportunities to build our high-tech economy and to establish exciting careers for young people and families throughout the State. With more than 300 new positions available at the globally recognized College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, the Nano Job Fair provides a pathway for 21st century jobs in New York's expanding technology sector, and I am delighted to see the tremendous response and participation in this important event."

New York State Labor Commissioner Peter M. Rivera said, "The Department of Labor is pleased to work in partnership with the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering to help connect New Yorkers with high-tech careers in the fast-growing nanotechnology industry. The Nano Job Fair offers a prime example of the high-quality jobs available in the State's emerging technology sector, as well as our commitment to giving residents access to new opportunities in the fields that will define our future workforce."

CNSE Senior Vice President and CEO Dr. Alain Kaloyeros said, "Led by the pioneering vision and strategy of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, the expansion of New York's innovation economy is providing exciting careers that exemplify the New New York. We are pleased to work in partnership with the Governor and State Department of Labor to ensure that all New Yorkers have the chance to pursue new opportunities at CNSE as part of the state's world-class nanotechnology industry."

The Nano Job Fair represents a first-of-its-kind effort in New York to be conducted jointly through an interagency partnership between the Department of Labor and CNSE, under the direction of Governor Cuomo.

A significant outreach effort was engaged to encourage women, veterans and minority candidates to participate in the Nano Job Fair, which gave candidates an opportunity to learn more about the job openings at CNSE, complete and submit applications, and participate in introductory interviews with CNSE representatives.

As a result of this outreach effort, pre-registration for the Nano Job Fair exceeded the 800 registrant capacity. Due to the overwhelming response, and the need to fill an additional 300 jobs, another job fair will be scheduled in the next few months.

A variety of technical, engineering and infrastructure support positions were showcased at the event, including engineering and process operators; facilities operations technicians, with skills in HVAC and nanoelectronics tool fit-up and maintenance; and environmental health and safety officers. Additionally, candidates interviewed for positions in administrative, operational and support roles, ranging from information technology and purchasing to site services, with openings that include security officers, cleaning and maintenance personnel.

Annual salaries range from $35,000 to over $100,000 for the positions, which are funded through the Research Foundation for SUNY (RF), a private, nonprofit, educational corporation that administers sponsored program activity for the University at Albany.
