A regional Job Fair will be held in Athens on Wednesday, April 17. All local employers are encouraged to take part in the event even if they don’t currently have any positions open.
The Job Fair, which is one of the largest in southeastern Ohio, is being coordinated by The Work Station in Athens County, the Meigs County One-Stop Jobs Center, and the Perry County 1-Stop Jobs Center.
The event will run from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 17, at the Athens Community Center, located at 701 E. State Street in Athens. The Job Fair is free to all job seekers and all employers.
In 2012, more than 500 job seekers attended the Job Fair, and many of them reported finding work due to contacts made at the event. Another large crowd is expected this year, and the day will provide local employers with an excellent opportunity to meet and interview potential employees.
All job seekers are asked to dress as if they are attending job interviews, be prepared to discuss their qualifications and bring extra copies of their resumes with them.
