Monday, July 11, 2011
Local Queens residents are racing in with their job applications – according to the company developing the new casino coming to Aqueduct in South Ozone Park.
Resorts World Casino received a total of 10,654 job applications to fill an expected 1,150 permanent jobs since the company started the hiring process at the end of May.
Resorts World used as expansive network of resources to get the word out to job seekers. The gaming giant started an onsite employment center, partnered with three local employment centers and launched online application tools at www.rwnewyork.com.
“We’re so pleased that so many people have already utilized the various employment resources we’ve made available to the community,” said Kevin Bogle, vice president of human resources at Resorts World. “The overwhelming response we’ve seen from job seekers in such a short period of time is a strong indication that Queens is primed for further development, and we are pleased to play a role in stimulating the local economy.”
