Hundreds of jobs seekers and at least 74 employers will try to connect between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesday at the largest-ever job fair in the Columbus Learning Center.
Employers looking for prospective employees will include manufacturers such as NTN Driveshaft and Honda, nonprofits such as the United Way in Bartholomew County and kidscommons, government agencies including the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department and retailers such as Skechers and Gap.
The fair is being hosted by IUPUC, Ivy Tech Community College Columbus-Franklin and the Purdue College of Technology Columbus, which offer a variety of degrees. The diversity of the colleges partially explains the diversity of employers, said Anji McKinney, lead coordinator for student services at the Purdue College.
