Two town job opportunities
Release Date: March 31, 2010

During the past year and a half I have been posting job opportunities on www.linkedin.com (greenburgh jobs group). I have also been e mailing residents job openings as I learn of them. Based on feedback that I have received from residents I estimate that about 40 people found work from these e mails. If you are out of work and would like to be notified about job openings as I learn of them please e mail pfeiner@greenburghny.com. If you are aware of job openings where you work please e mail me and I will share the info with your neighbors who are out of work.
Neighbors helping neighbors---that’s what a community should be about. The following two job opportunities are available in the town of Greenburgh.
