Letter: Businesses, job seekers, meet success at job fair

On June 6, 52 businesses from Anderson, Madison County and the surrounding area participated in a Job Fair at Madison Park Church of God. There were 1,153 job seekers interested in more than 700 jobs available in the city, county and surrounding area.

This Job Fair was a joint effort of WorkOne Anderson, Central Indiana Regional Workforce Board, Madison County Chamber, Corporation for Economic Development, Board of Madison County Commissioners, JobSource, The Herald Bulletin and Madison Park Church of God. Additionally, the City of Anderson Transit System (CATS) provided a shuttle service to the Job Fair. Miller Huggins contributed a copier for the day to be used by employers and job seekers.

A special thank-you to area businesses for taking the time to share your job openings and talking to interested applicants. The feedback indicates Anderson has an excellent pool of applicants for workforce demands. Success stories of businesses hiring new team members the day of the job fair have already been reported.

Businesses or applicants that missed the job fair may access job matching services through the WorkOne Anderson office at 222 E. 10th St. These services include matching applicants and employers, a variety of seminars for businesses and job seekers, WorkKeys assessments and specialized recruiting. Applicants interested in a Fast Track to employment may attend a series of workshops including job search, resume clinics, interviewing and networking.

This event far exceeded the initial expectations and was a great success for the community; employers and job seekers alike. A big thank you to everyone who made this Job Fair a success.

If you are a business looking to hire or a job seeker looking for employment or a better job, please visit WorkOne Anderson.

  • Bannon, Tom Viewpoint: Paramount is an investment that is paying dividends About 25 years ago the citizens of Anderson made a decision that would have a long lasting impact on the community. Instead of saving the old Paramount Theatre, which had fallen into serious disrepair, it was decided that the easy and prudent decision was to get rid of the building to create additional downtown parking. Shortly after the Paramount came down, the community got rid of another abandoned structure when the old Carnegie Building, which was the former home of the Anderson Public Library, was torn down.
