The Workforce & Business Development Program of the Community Action Committee of Pike County, along with OhioMeansJobs-Pike County, joined forces with the Pike County Career Technology Center to host The Second Annual Job Fair Expo on Wednesday, May 8 in Piketon. Approximately 29 area employers were available to meet 52 job seekers during the event. Job seekers were able to submit applications and resumes, network with other job seekers, speak with business representatives, and use the computer lab to file online applications. Many promotional items were handed out from various employers, and there were approximately 25 door prizes donated from employers and given out. We did post pictures on our Facebook page to share moments from the event.
Part of the OhioMeansJobs-Pike County mission is not only to lead employers to employees; but also help to address possible barriers that stand in the way of someone becoming employed. Employers offered feedback by saying, “It was a nice job fair. The layout was different in that there weren’t rows of tables, making it more comfortable. We received four resumes from serious candidates. Thank you for having us!”
The Job Fair Expo was also a great opportunity for employers to network and discuss ongoing workforce trends and make lasting relationships with similar companies. The Job Fair Expo Planning Committee would like to express its heartfelt thanks to all who attended and who had a hand in making this second job fair a success!
