Client Readiness Workshops

Berkshire County Second Chances Job and Resource Fair

Justice involved individuals — especially the formerly incarcerated — face enormous barriers to employment. Talented and eager to work, this untapped pool of workers can bring great value to employers and communities when given the opportunity to thrive and succeed in the workplace. The Berkshire County Second Chances Job and Resource Fair is a free event for anyone looking for employment. The fair will be held Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2023, 4 – 7 p.m. at Berkshire Community College's Paterson Field House, 1350 West St, Pittsfield, MA 01201. Walk-ins are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.
