Licensed massage therapists lent a hand and offered massages while representing the York Campus for Baltimore School of Massage Therapy as participants moved from table to table communicating with the various business recruiters at the York Career Fair on Oct. 5, at PeoplesBank Park. 

York County School of Technology commercial drivers license coordinator Calvin Wiley was at the fair looking for people who need training for a new career.

"We're dong CDL training for folks who are displaced from jobs. We have nursing careers; we have welding careers over at York County School of Technology," Wiley said. "We are trying to be the best school around to get people jobs."

Those attending found out about many possibilities that are available.

"It's been really informative," Sheritha McKenzie, of Dallastown, said. "I came because I'm looking to make a career change. I'm looking to get into marketing or communications. I have a heavy sales background, and now I'm looking to transition out of that ... where I can utilize all of my creative skills."
