The Fairfield 33 Development Alliance, in partnership with Fairfield County school's Business Advisory Council and Ohio Means Jobs Fairfield County, is hosting its second annual Career Readiness Expo on April 1, 2020. The event will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Fairfield County Workforce Center, 4465 Coonpath Rd NW, Carroll, OH 43112. The event is free and open to all juniors and seniors in the county along with their parents. It will introduce local careers to these students, many of whom can start working immediately after high school. Last year there were more than 50 employers and 120 students who attended the Expo. "There are a lot of students graduating high school who have a strong work ethic but don’t know about the great careers that are out there,” said Rick Szabrak, Fairfield County Economic and Workforce Development Director. This Expo helped some of those students start careers last year. I’m hoping to see even a larger turnout of students, parents, and employers this year.”
Moving it to the Fairfield Workforce Center will allow for more employers to be at the event. It will also give the County a chance to introduce businesses and students to the Workforce Center, which will introduce programming from Hocking College and Ohio University later this year.
Students, parents, and local employers can sign up at Fairfield33.com. It is free for businesses to have a table. Email Rick Szabrak at Rick.Szabrak@FairfieldCountyOhio.gov.
