The Racine County Spring Career Fair is scheduled for Wednesday; hundreds of openings available | Local News

A free community event is planned this week to help job seekers find one with a local employer.

The Racine County Spring Job Fair is scheduled for 2-6 p.m. Wednesday, March 23 at Fountain Banquet Hall, 8505 Durand Ave., Sturtevant.

Attendees can meet local business representatives who are hiring for full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions, including: administrative work, manufacturing, healthcare, and more.

More than 40 employers will be on hand to ensure local hiring for hundreds of positions.

The annual event is sponsored by The Journal Times, Southeastern Wisconsin Workforce Development Board and Equus Workforce Solutions.

“As one of the Collaborative Employment Center partners, we are thrilled to be hosting these events,” said Robert Nash, community spokesperson for Equus. “In real time, we can see the connections made by job seekers and employers.”

Job fair positions include machine operators, caregivers, maintenance technicians, warehouse workers, forklift operators, truck drivers, assemblers, sales, janitors, paramedics paramedics, customer service and CNAs, among others.

“Ideally, we like to see the instant impact of someone who needs a job and walks out with a scheduled interview or even a conditional job offer. And in the current climate, that could very well be a possibility at these types of events,” Nash said.

“A job fair is an opportunity to bring many resources directly to people. Between employers, state, and local programs, you should really try to come and talk to as many organizations as possible,” he said.

The event is free.
