Local employers are still able to sign up for an exhibitor booth to host job opening along with select videos.

“Our goal for the March 4 live day for adults is to allow employers and employees the opportunity to interact and learn more about each other, even now, we have low unemployment in Shawnee County, which means that employers are having to work harder to fill their open positions. We are offering this Virtual Career Fair as one means to help the employers fill their open positions, and the potential employees find a good fit for their skill set.”
