Posted: Friday, August 14, 2020

U.S. Representative Jim Banks invites those who are interested to take part in his 2020 Job Fair. The 2020 Job Fair is in conjunction with Purdue University Fort Wayne and WorkOne Northeast.

In consideration of the safety of the employers and jobseekers, it has been decided to conduct the Job Fair virtually through WebEx on Wednesday, August 19. Amidst these times of uncertainty, we remain dedicated to connecting businesses with hardworking jobseekers while providing them with the tools they need to compete and succeed in this increasingly competitive economy.

Banks said, “We are excited to have the ability to conduct this virtual event for Northeast Indiana’s employers. I would like to invite representatives from your company to attend this unique Job Fair, where you can showcase employment opportunities at your company and interview jobseekers in a virtual chat room setting. In past years, we have hosted hundreds of Northeast Indiana jobseekers and are excited to continue to do so.”

The event will run from 12 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, August 19, via WebEx. Prior to the event, Banks’ staff will assist in helping all of the registered employers gain familiarity with WebEx and its features that will be utilized during the Job Fair to make this as beneficial as possible for your company.
