A multi-employer “mega” job fair will be held at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg on Wednesday, April 27th from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. The event will feature dozens of employers from around the Big Sandy region who are ready to hire their next employees.
Big Sandy Area Community Action Program (BSACAP) is hosting the event in partnership with the Kentucky Career Center, Big Sandy Community and Technical College’s Workforce Solutions program, the American Job Center, and the Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program (EKCEP).
Employers joining the event include energy providers, coal, natural gas, construction, healthcare, transportation, corrections, retail, and several other sectors.
“We are excited to be able to offer a large, in-person event again,” said BSACAP Executive Director Wanda Thacker. “The last two years have been difficult for job seekers and employers alike, so we are happy that job seekers will have the opportunity to talk to so many employers in a single day and that employers can spread the word about their available positions directly to the community.”
Special to this event, job seekers will be able to gain VIP early access to employers when they register to speak with a Career Advisor about creating or updating a resume.
Kentucky Career Center One Stop Operator Sarah Hill explained, “Career Advisors are resume experts who really know what employers are looking for and how you can best present yourself to them. Having a good, strong resume in hand when you walk up to a potential employer gives you the confident and professional appearance that you’re striving for. VIP access to the job fair is really going to give people their best chance to make a good first impression.”
To register for VIP access to the job fair, visit bsacap.org/wioa, call (606) 789-2857, or email CareerHelp@bsacap.org.
On-site registration will take place on the day of the event, April 27th, but VIP access can only be granted ahead of time until April 26th.
