Event Description

August 8, 2014 Updated Aug 8, 2014 at 7:44 AM EDT

Indiana Third District Congressman Marlin Stutzman's annual job fair returns to the Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) campus on Monday, August 18, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Walb Student Union Classic Ballroom. IPFW is co-sponsoring the event.

Representatives from 70 employers with more than 3,000 jobs to fill will be on hand to meet with job seekers. That represents a 40% increase over last year's number of employers and three times the number of jobs that companies were offering.

The free event combines interview training with networking opportunities to help job seekers make the most of their time. Those looking for jobs can meet dozens of employers who are hiring and network with other job seekers and business owners, all on the same day at the same location.

An interview training session, sponsored by WorkOne Northeast and IPFW’s Office of Career Services, takes place from noon to 3 p.m. in Walb Student Union. Attendees will learn how to:
•highlight their experience and qualifications
•create a vivid, positive impression on employers
•develop contacts to build a professional network

Both the job fair and training session are free and open to the public.
