Hundreds of Milwaukee area residents were able to talk with employers seeking workers at the 5th Annual SDC Community Job and Resource Fair.
The Fair was held at Parklawn Assembly of God Church and attracted more than 800 persons. The day featured a number of businesses and organizations seeking employees including Wells Fargo, Milwaukee County, the New Horizon Center, and Manpower Group.
The Job and Resource Fair also provided residents with the chance to get blood pressure and glucose testing, access to Child Support case workers, and Milwaukee Municipal Judge Derek Mosely who advised people seeking to get back their drivers licenses. Resources in the areas of Health, Finances, Housing, Education and Nutrition were also available to provide valuable information.
A new aspect of the Fair was a group of personal coaches who were able to sit down with interested persons to talk about their goals and which vendors at the Fair best matched up with them. An area was also provided where persons attending could apply for jobs on-line.
