More than 20 local employers will seek applicants for more than 300 jobs at a job fair Thursday at the Columbus Learning Center.
Employers ranging from auto-parts makers Aisin and Cummins to Fifth Third Bank and forklift maker Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing will interact with job seekers between 1 and 4 p.m.
Companies are looking for employees in fields including mechanical technology, accounting, warehousing and welding, said Phyllis Burgos of WorkOne via email.
While employers nationwide have said that they are struggling to find qualified employees, especially in technical occupations, Columbus employers are having an even tougher time because of the local unemployment rate.
WorkOne, one of the job fair’s organizers, urged job seekers to come prepared by bringing resumes and dressing appropriately. WorkOne, part of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, is hosting the event with the Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce, the Learning Center, Ivy Tech Community College, the Indiana Region 9 Workforce Board and IUPUC.
WorkOne on Thursday also will host a seminar for employers to present information about unemployment changes. The agency will host the event at 10:30 a.m. in the Learning Center’s Summerville Room. For information, contact Phyllis Burgos at email@example.com.
