New York plans job fair in response to WTC tragedy

NEW YORK (CNN) -- The city has scheduled a job fair to assist those displaced by the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, Mayor Rudy Giuliani announced Monday.

The fair is scheduled for Wednesday, October 17, at Madison Square Garden.

The job fair is a coordinated effort between the city and the state, said Giuliani. More than 200 employers will be on hand, in fields from financial services to health care, offering more than 13,000 job openings.

"The priority (is to help) people who lost jobs at the Trade Center," said Giuliani, "but (the fair) could help anybody find a job."

Giuliani called the job fair "a milestone," and said it was part of the process to help New York "emerge much stronger than before."

Many businesses remain shuttered in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks, which destroyed the twin skyscrapers of the World Trade Center complex and damaged several other buildings in New York's financial district. The attack took the lives of more than 5,000 people.
