WOODBURY – After earning the unanimous support of the Town and Village of Woodbury and the recent success of its forum for local vendors, Caesars New York hosted a popular employment exposition Thursday, July 17th to showcase job opportunities at its Woodbury resort destination project.
With over 300 attendees from Sullivan, Ulster & Dutchess Counties and across the region, Caesars’ employment expo detailed the types of jobs, training and benefits that will be offered with Caesars New York in Woodbury. Caesars employees were on hand to discuss the benefits of working for the company.
Caesars has a long track record of providing good jobs with benefits, and the Woodbury destination resort is anticipated to create approximately 4,500 direct jobs including 1,500 construction jobs and approximately 3,000 permanent, well-paying, mostly union jobs. These jobs will provide average compensation of about $50,000 per year. This is in addition to spending about $50 million a year partnering with upstate New York businesses once operational, if it receives a license.
"We are excited by the enthusiasm and impressive turnout for our first employment exposition to help the community partner in building a premier resort destination in Woodbury. By showcasing the types of jobs and support offered by Caesars, we hope to promote local opportunities to ensure the most benefits for the community, making it the most successful gaming project in New York State," said Jan Jones Blackhurst, Executive Vice President, Communications and Government Relations for Caesars.
"In my 13 years with Caesars Entertainment, I have grown tremendously, both professionally and personally. I value that Caesars and my Horseshoe family place great importance on maintaining a work-life balance and support me in my every endeavor," said Danielle McWilliams, Table Games Assistant Manager who is employed by Caesars at Horseshoe Cincinnati.
