The Wells County Chamber of Commerce and Wells County Economic Development are hosting a job fair Thursday in Bluffton. The event will feature 26 companies and staffing agencies looking to fill positions in a number of sectors, including manufacturing, transportation and healthcare.
The job fair will take place from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Arts Commerce and Visitors Centre, located at 211 W. Water Street in Bluffton. The event is free and job seekers are encouraged to bring multiple copies of their resume and be prepared for interviews.
"Wells County employers are struggling to fill vacancies in a variety of positions," said Chad Kline, Wells County economic development director. "With representation from manufacturing, health care and more, this job fair will allow anyone seeking a career to meet a variety of companies in one place."
Northeast Indiana Works, which is assisting with the event, says the job fair is "largely designed" for workers at PendaForm Corp. The recently-acquired company announced in late January it would lay off 76 workers by the end of the month. However, the job fair is open to everyone looking for a job.
