Job and Career Fair slated for March 26

The annual Peninsula Job Fair, billed as the biggest recruitment event on the Peninsula, will take place on Wednesday, March 26 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Peninsula Job Center.

Employers, including private businesses and government agencies, and college representatives will be on hand to answer questions, provide job applications and accept resumes. Retail, tourism, oil and gas, healthcare, construction and commercial fishing sectors will be represented at the fair.

Adult job seekers will have the opportunities to speak with employers, apply for their current openings, and learn about future employment opportunities.

In addition, junior and senior students from Kenai Central, Nikiski Middle-High, Skyview, and Soldotna High Schools are being transported to the job fair by the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. For the second year running, the Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District partnered to deliver resume writing, interviewing and work ethics training in preparation for this event.

This is an outstanding opportunity for people looking for work, looking for a career or looking to change a career. Job seekers should bring several copies of their resume and be dressed to interview with employers.

The Peninsula Job Fair, coordinated by the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development with support from the Peninsula Clarion and alaskajobnet.com, City of Soldotna, City of Kenai and the Kenai and Soldotna Chambers of Commerce, is designed to provide opportunities for those looking to improve or change their career status.

For businesses interested in having a booth at the Job Fair, please contact Jackie Garcia, Peninsula Job Center Business Connections Specialist, at 907-335-3030.
