Looking for work?
Recently the town website (www.SecaucusNJ.org) added a jobs link for residents seeking employment opportunities. The link, which can be found on the left hand side of the home page, about mid-way down, features vacant positions at Secaucus-based businesses and employment websites. Positions at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, the Hackensack Riverkeeper, and Goya Foods were among the job vacancies listed last week. Upcoming job fairs and training opportunities can also be found on the site.
There’s a separate link for residents who want to volunteer their time and skills.
Employers that want to list positions on the municipal website are encouraged to contact Roxanne Paciga at (201) 330-2016.
