“We are helping to bring people together by connecting job seekers with actively recruiting businesses in North Iowa. We want our job seekers to have every opportunity to be gainfully employed,” said Josh Davison, IowaWORKS Disabled Veteran Outreach Program Specialist.
“We know that the pandemic has had a changing effect on how employers and job seekers find each other. Anyone who has filled out an employment application and did not get an interview, is someone who could benefit from this career fair. An employer who has posted a job position and did not find the right person to hire, could benefit from this career fair,” said Mila Bair, IowaWORKS Career Planner.
