The CNYRC is comprised of six member institutions including Utica College, Mohawk Valley Community College, Herkimer County Community College, SUNYIT, Morrisville State College and USC The Business College.
The CNYRC serves as a resource to employers by allowing one point of entry for companies to recruit candidates from all member institutions. The fair is one of the most effective methods of assisting employers in finding local talent to fill their hiring needs.
Attendees should bring multiple copies of their resumes and be dressed in business attire.
The Genesis Group is a grass roots organization that unites individuals and organizations working to advance regional economic, social and cultural interest, and to foster regional unity and cooperation in the Mohawk Valley.

Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes such as Anatomy and Physiology and Medicines and Pediatrics, which has been a great asset in working in a health care profession. Fieldwork hours with both healthy and hospitalized children including a wide range of ages and abilities were an invaluable experience. I remember how exciting it was during my internship when I was able to actually relate theory into practice."
