Town Hosts Job Fair to Help the Region

The Town will be hosting a regional Job Fair on Wednesday, July 14th, 2021 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Dean and Barbara White Community Center inside the Mike Anderson Chevrolet Event Center located on the north side of the 84,000 square foot multi-use new center. I have placed below a poster that highlight all of the wonderful companies who will be represented and hiring many new employees. 

The event has attracted 48 area companies who are looking to fill a variety of jobs in the region from the trades, distribution, medical, food workers, healthcare, schools, police departments, utilities, restaurants, manufacturing, grocery story, auto dealerships and even the US military jobs are available. 

Our Town Manager, Pat Reardon said “We’ve just been overwhelmed by the response and the variety of wonderful area companies who will be participating.” 

The town will also be raffling off laptop computers and tablets to four lucky participants that day. Random drawings will be held at various time of the day for attendees. The devices are provided by the town as part of the sponsorship benefits to attack jobseekers to attend. 

“We are hopeful that this event will assist residents in the area to find jobs that are available right now”, said Town Council President Rick Bella, “The Dean and Barbara White Community Center is the perfect venue to host this event and we are appreciative of the top-notch companies who are participating”. 

The town has been blessed with new development as well as long-standing companies re-investing in our town by doing remodeling and additions to existing buildings expanding their business opportunities. 

My fellow Councilman Shawn Pettit said “This event allows the town to come full-circle with companies who have invested in our area. It allows us to think about economic growth from the planning stage, groundbreaking, building, and now assisting with staffing of great companies that have chosen our region to locate.”

I hope to see you Wednesday, July 14th at 11 a.m. Just check out that list of companies that will be present to fill open positions! Need a job? You just have to attend this great JOB FAIR! -Rick Bella for The Town of Merrillville
