The annual Central Wisconsin Job Fair, a free event open to all jobseekers, will be held this year on April 6. The job fair takes place in the Gymnasium (E Building) at Mid-State Technical College’s Wisconsin Rapids Campus (500 32nd Street North).
The job fair is open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and members of the general public are encouraged to attend. Veterans are invited to arrive at 9:30 a.m. for a special early opening.
According to Mid-State Career Services Coordinator Joe Pomrening, the Central Wisconsin Job Fair is an excellent opportunity for jobseekers to make an impression with companies and organizations looking to hire.
“Come prepared with your resume, dress professional, and be ready to talk about the reasons you would be a good fit, because many of the participating employers are looking to hire right away,” said Pomrening.
The Central Wisconsin Job Fair is organized by Mid-State and the Wisconsin Rapids Job Center. This year’s event is also sponsored by Gannett Central Wisconsin and the North Central Wisconsin Workforce Development Board.
A Job Fair Fever workshop is available prior to the event. Job Fair Fever covers applications, resumes, what to wear, how to approach employers, what to say to employers, and how to follow up after the Job Fair. Workshops will be held on March 30 and April 1 from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. at the Wisconsin Rapids Job Center (320 W. Grand Ave., #102). A Job Fair Fever workshop is also being offered from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. on March 31 at Mid-State’s Stevens Point Campus (1001 Centerpoint Dr.). To register please contact the Wisconsin Rapids Job Center at 715-422-5000. Workshop registration is available on a first come, first served basis.
