Both job seekers and employers were showing off their best Thursday evening at the Spring Job Fair at Washington State Community College.
Over 30 different employers ranging from healthcare to engineering to customer service to banking, even the U.S. Army was on hand to answer questions and make connections with potential employees.
The job fair wasn't just for students, but for the public as well.
With many people in the Mid-Ohio Valley looking for work, those in charge of the event wanted as many people as possible to have the opportunity to meet with employers and hopefully find a job that's right for them
"We wanted to open it up to community because there's a lot of people out there that are looking for work," says Nicole Kuhn, Assistant Director of Admissions at Washington State Community College. "And then there's people that are under employed as well. So we wanted to have an evening so that a lot of people could take advantage of the event."
This is the first time the job fair has been held in about five years.
In order for employers to participate they had to be hiring within the next year.
Kuhn says the event was a great success and hopes to continue it next year.
