Whether you're looking for the first rung on the employment ladder, a path back to the job mainstream, extra cash, or a way to stay active in your retirement years, chances are good that there's something for you at Saturday's Seaside Heights and Vicinity Job Fair.

Interviews, by business operators from the Boardwalk and beyond, will take place on the spot, 12 Noon until 3 PM, at the Ortley Beach Acme, a shout away from Seaside, in the Ortley Plaza on Route 35. Everyone age 16 and older is eligible.

Organizer Christine Karaska of the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development tells us that some of the handsomest-paying jobs in Ocean County are waiting to be filled.

Drivers are needed, and the going rate is $18.75 per hour. Stock clerks and game operators can earn $10 per hour.

More than 200 positions are available for lifeguards, and another 50 cashier and deli positions must be filled as soon as possible, Christine said.

If restaurant work is your line, there are openings for cooks, table attendants, bartenders, and dishwashers.

And, of course, there are the jobs that bring you into contact with families from far and wide who visit the Jersey Shore - beach badge attendants, photographers, ride operators, and counter help at the many food concessions that promise to be busy all summer.

Christine reminds job-seekers that prospective employers will be on the hunt for the kind of winning smiles, upbeat attitudes and neat appearances that turn shore visitors into shore regulars.

So, break out the business-casual, print multiple resumes, bring two forms of identification and put your best foot forward. Good luck!
