FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Northeast Indiana Congressman Jim Banks, in conjunction with Purdue University Fort Wayne and WorkOne Northeast, will host a job fair next week.
The job fair will be from noon to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 4 in the university’s Walb Union International Ballroom.
More than 70 employers with a total of about 1,000 job openings are expected to attend.
“Just this month, there’ve been more than 14,000 online job postings in northeast Indiana,” said Banks. “It’s incredibly important right now for Hoosier workers and employers to connect, and for workers to have access to free, short-term training, so northeast Indiana’s economy can fully and speedily recover from the COVID pandemic.”
The employers represented span a wide variety of industries, including finance, government, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation and logistics, military and social services.
The job fair is conducted annually and is one of the largest in northeast Indiana.
In addition to the job opportunities at the fair, WorkOne Northeast representatives will be available to assist job seekers with resumes, provide guidance on job interview techniques, and offer information on short-term, certification-based training opportunities.
The job fair and WorkOne Northeast guidance opportunities are free. For those attending, parking is available in Parking Garage 2 (P2), which is near the Walb Union on the Purdue Fort Wayne campus.
