The town of Merrillville will Wednesday host its first job fair. Our partners at The Times of Northwest Indiana report dozens of companies with local employment opportunities will be featured during the event, which will be held at the Dean and Barbara White Community Center.
The event is scheduled to run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
According to The Times, open positions are in distribution, medical, food industry, healthcare, education, law enforcement, utilities, restaurants, manufacturing, grocery, auto dealerships and the military.
“We’ve just been overwhelmed by the response and the variety of wonderful area companies who will be participating,” Town Manager Pat Reardon said. “With almost 50 companies representing a wide variety of jobs available in the Region, the opportunities are endless for someone seeking employment.”
The companies involved in the fair include Amazon, Precision Turbo/Turbonetics, Quality Pasta and Midwest Truck & Auto.
“This event allows the town to come full-circle with companies who have invested in our area,” Town Councilman Shawn Pettit said. “It allows us to think about economic growth from the planning stage, groundbreaking, building and now assisting with staffing of great companies that have chosen our region to locate.”
The Times reports representatives from many other local companies will be present, including Albanese, Centier Bank, NIPSCO, Strack & Van Til, Modern Forge and the Merrillville Community School Corp.
