The 2010 Hoosier Job Fair is under a month away and already 56 businesses are signed up to participate, offering 900 employment opportunities to Hoosiers throughout the state. Congressman Steve Buyer’s (IN-04) 12th job fair will be held on Monday, July 19 2010, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the gymnasium of Lafayette Jefferson High School.
Congressman Buyer is appreciative to have the help of the Lafayette and West Lafayette Mayors, Tony Roswarski and John Dennis, Lafayette Jefferson High School, the Greater Lafayette Commerce, Tecumseh Area Partnership, and WorkOne in hosting the 2010 Hoosier Job Fair—the third job fair for the Congressman in Lafayette since 2005.
“During these difficult economic times, I know Hoosiers and local businesses are struggling. Our state is enduring an unemployment rate which hovers around 10 percent, and so I am hopeful with the job fair on the 19th that businesses and job seekers will be able to come together and find the right fit,” commented Buyer. “Of the 56 businesses signed up to participate, we have a wide range of employment opportunities being offered –from education and nursing to industrial and clerical positions.”
The 2010 Hoosier Job Fair will have representatives from businesses all over the fourth congressional district and the state of Indiana. The job fair is free and open to all businesses, job-seekers and to those who may be searching for new opportunities. Businesses may still sign up at www.stevebuyer.house.gov or by calling Michelle Price in Congressman Buyer’s Plainfield District Office at (317) 838-0404.
A final list of participating businesses will be posted on Congressman Buyer’s website and released to the press approximately one week prior to the 2010 Hoosier Job Fair.
