As the economy recovers and Ohio businesses across the state work to stay open or in some cases reopen, JobsOhio’s Network Partners in Ottawa, Sandusky, and Seneca County are hosting OH•Zone, a virtual career fair, on Tuesday, April 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. with a focus on high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors, as well as the public.
“The virtual career fair will help to connect with prospective employees and meet the workforce needs of local companies and industries,” said Jeff Sprague, Regional Talent Manager for the JobsOhio Northwest Ohio region.
The online event will feature companies from throughout Ottawa County that are hiring for open positions. Participating employers from throughout the three counties will have virtual booths featuring their open positions at varying experience levels.
“Through the career fair, we hope to attract the attention of active jobseekers who seek employment or advancement, or who are ready to make a career change,” said Sprague.
High school students and job seekers are encouraged to register for the event early to upload their resume and qualifications, explore companies and open positions, and sign up to receive alerts and reminders leading up to and throughout the event. Companies will also be reaching out to set up interviews with job seekers for April 13, so job seekers should visit the event page to explore companies and get registered.
OhioMeansJobs staff in Ottawa County are available to assist high school students and job seekers with preparing for the event and navigating the event on April 13.
