The Knox County Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the YMCA Bettye J. McCormick Senior Center, 2009 Prospect Ave., and the WVUB Job Board will be hosting a “Senior Job Fair” Wednesday June 17th 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm to help local seniors find part-time and full-time employment.
The Chamber has been focused on connecting those looking for gainful employment with the local businesses so desperately looking for workers, and seniors can play a vital role in establishing a healthy business climate.
Marc McNeece, president of the Knox County Chamber of Commerce, said, “The Chamber will do everything in its power to create a vibrant economy, and a large part of that is helping people find the right opportunities and connecting employers with potential employees.”
McNeece also said, “The Chamber is happy to have this opportunity to partner with the senior center. By doing so, we are able to expand our search to some of the most qualified employees, our seniors.”
The fair will be open to any senior searching for employment. Opportunities will be available in health care, retail and manufacturing, to name just a few. The Chamber is also looking for local businesses to participate. If your business would like to have a booth at the job fair or for further information, contact the Chamber office at 812-882-6440.
