Linking Michiana has gathered employers from various cities in Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan to meet potential employees at their 3rd Annual Job Fair at Howe Military Academy! Job seekers of all ages are invited! From entry level to the most skilled and experienced job seeker- this is a hiring event not to miss! High school seniors could also benefit from attending, because several employers will be seeking to fill additional full time positions coming available this summer! Job seekers are encouraged to bring several copies of their resumes and dress as they would for a job interview.
While this annual hiring event helps area job seekers gain employment, it also raises money for Howe Military Academy’s Scholarship Fund. A special addition to Linking Michiana’s job fair is the laptop station set up by PMC Computers & Surveillance, of Kendallville, Indiana, for job seekers to apply for positions online!
For Hoosier veterans, a Veteran’s Employment & Training Advisor from WorkOne Northeast will be available to answer questions and explain their services. South Bend Vet Center will be present with their mobile unit to explain their outreach and resources to veterans and their families.
Looking for new job, a summer job or better job? It’s free! It’s open to the public and everyone is invited!
