Drive Thru Job Fair


When:
Wednesday, October 14, 2020 10:00 AM thru 02:00 PM
Where:

Southeast KANSASWORKS will host a “Drive-Thru Job Fair” from 10am to 2pm on Wednesday, October 14th and we’re inviting you to participate! During this time, Southeast KANSASWORKS staff will distribute packets filled with information containing job applications and job orders as well as additional information about community resources to job seekers looking for immediate employment. This will be a “no-touch” event meaning that all packets will be assembled by staff who are wearing masks/gloves with one staff member handling the packets during the event as customers remain in their cars.

To have your job openings/applications included in the packets please fill out the attached form completely and return to me no later than COB on Friday, October 9th.  If you have a paper application, return that with the completed form and we will make additional copies to distribute. Also, please be sure to note how you would like your applications returned.

We understand this is different from your typical job fair but feel like this could be an excellent opportunity for your business to recruit the employees needed to maintain normal operation, as much as possible, during this time.
