SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Today, Congressman Joe Donnelly announced that his 2nd Annual Job Seeker Workshop will be held on Tuesday, July 24th in Elkhart, and his 3rd Annual Job Fair will be held on Friday, August 10th in South Bend.
"I will work non-stop until every Hoosier who wants a job has a job," said Donnelly. "That's why my office will host these two annual job events. My 2nd Annual Job Seeker Workshop is designed to help attendees improve their job search techniques, for example, by honing interviewing skills. My 3rd Annual Job Fair is designed to connect Hoosiers looking for work with prospective employers. Also, for Hoosiers considering more training or education, representatives from local educational institutions and retraining programs will be in attendance. I hope that participants in the July workshop will be able to apply new job-finding skills at my job fair in August."
