Erie County, in partnership with the Buffalo and Erie County Workforce Investment Board (“WIB”), is sponsoring a Job Fair for residents seeking positions with Panasonic on Wednesday, December 6 from 5:00 – 8:00 PM at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center. Panasonic presentations and interviews will take place every 30 minutes beginning at 5:30.

“Panasonic is a big addition to our economic portfolio in Erie County and they are hiring now. We are excited to sponsor this opportunity to meet face-to-face with Panasonic’s team and I encourage our local workforce to participate,” said Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz. “These positions will be in high demand, so workers should have their resumes in order and plan on preregistering with Panasonic online to be considered for one of the many new positions there.”

Among other positions, the Panasonic team will be interviewing applicants for Production/Manufacturing Operators, Machine Operators, Electrical/Mechanical Technicians, and Engineers.

Heather Gresham, Executive Director of the WIB, added, “Having an employer the size of Panasonic come to town does not happen very often, so this is a rare chance for local jobseekers to get in with a company that produces cutting-edge, in-demand technology. It’s exciting and we are looking forward to a great atmosphere and productive Job Fair on December 6th.”

Residents planning to participate in the Job Fair should first RSVP and upload their resume to the Panasonic website at https://us-careers.panasonic.com/signup/careerfair .

Panasonic is proud to be an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, and any other characteristic protected by law or company policy. All qualified individuals are required to perform the essential functions of their assigned job with or without reasonable accommodation.
