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.

  • NWS - HB0728 - World War 1 Local Bob Quinn 2 Editorial: WWI commemorated at 100th anniversary On April 2, 1917, President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress for a declaration of war against Germany. There was overwhelming support. Neutrality was no longer an option. The sinking by Germany of the British ocean liner, the Lusitania, further committed Americans to the cause. Madison County answered the call, too.
