Job Fair attracts more than 500 prospective employees

The 2019 Job Fair attracted more than 500 prospective employees. 

The second annual Jefferson County Job Fair, set for Wednesday, Oct. 21, will provide the opportunity for local businesses to connect with job seekers The virtual event, which can be accessed online at jeffcojobfair.com, will bring together resources to help job seekers build their resumes, hone their skills and connect with prospective employers.

“We encourage businesses to sign up right away to ensure getting a spot,” Leader assistant publisher Peggy Scott said.

“Although we aren’t able to hold an in-person event again under the circumstances, we think this virtual event has the potential to be just as successful,” Scott said.

Again for 2020, the Job Fair will be sponsored by five local entities: Leader Publications, the city of Arnold, the Arnold Chamber of Commerce, the Fox C-6 School District and Jefferson College.

It will consist of a series of webinar-style meetings, during which employers will explain the services they offer and the type of employees they seek to hire. Each meeting will end with an interactive question-and-answer session.
