They’ll be screening candidates and holding interviews, with some prepared to hire on the spot.”

“The job fair is open to the public, so we hope to have another great turnout from the community this year,” Wavering said. “Even if you’re not looking for a change right now, we invite you to come out and see what these employers have to offer. We especially encourage veterans, students and those with disabilities to come out.”

Full-time positions being offered include, but are not limited to: machine operators, financial advisors, mechanics, electricians, electrical apprentices, sales, marketing, maintenance technicians, material handlers, public works, police, fire, clinical and non-clinical healthcare, administrative, and field technicians. In addition, dozens of part-time entry-level positions are available.
