Lancaster – Area job seekers will be in the Ohio University Lancaster Brasee Hall Gym on Wednesday, March 6. That's because Fairfield County Job and Family Services is holding the Adult and Teen Career Expo from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
"The university is a good location for such an event for students and community members," said Ohio University Lancaster Community and Corporate Learning Office Interim Director Ron Cullums. "We have been the host site for about 10 years. JFS has two job fairs each year, one in the fall and one in the spring."
Many employers and vendors are on hand at the job fair. It's a great opportunity for job seekers to find employers and careers that would be the right fit for them.
"This career expo is special because it has some jobs for teenagers," said Cullums. "It's a combination adult and teen career expo. There are more opportunities for teenagers going into the summer."
The Community and Corporate Learning Office at Ohio University Lancaster helps put on the job fair as part of its workforce development efforts in the community. The office also offers many other services to companies and job seekers in the region. Computer training courses and one-day workshops are offered throughout the year.
The next workshop is called "Better Performance Evaluations." It's being held on Friday, April 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The workshop is designed primarily with managers and supervisors in mind. The cost is $99 per person to attend the workshop.
"There are dos and don'ts in giving a performance evaluation," said Cullums. "We're just trying to help managers give performance evaluations in better way. They will learn to give the evaluation in a way that is good for the employee and the company."
