Job hunters will want to polish up their resumes as Empire City Casino in Yonkers looks to fill nearly 100 positions.

Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano and state representatives have joined forces to host a job fair Friday at the Yonkers Riverfront Library, highlighting dozens of available jobs at the casino.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Empire City representatives will conduct interviews for a number of positions, including bartenders, servers and line cooks, in a pair of soon-to-open restaurants.

The casino will also be interviewing candidates for valet attendant, cage cashier and several other operations positions. Job hunters are advised to come interview-ready, with professional attire and copies of their resume in hand.

Friday’s job fair comes on the heels of the Empire City Casino’s nearly complete $50 million expansion. In January, executives unveiled the 66,000-square-foot addition, which includes two vintage bowling lanes, more than 600 new gaming machines and two restaurants.

When completed, the expansion is expected to create an estimated 200 positions at the casino.

In response, lawmakers have organized Friday’s event to help residents in need of employment and to assist Empire City Casino in finding qualified candidates to fill the positions.
