Attention businesses recruiting employees. On March 16, a job fair will be held at the Northeast Iowa Community-Based Dairy Center, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. The Dairy Center is located on highway 150 just south of the NICC Campus and set up is scheduled from 11:30 A.M. to 12:45 P.M. The theme of the job fair is “Putting the Pieces Together”.

The Northeast Iowa Job Fair invites area businesses to recruit candidates from a six county area who are actively seeking employment by reserving space to showcase your business. At the 2005 Job Fair, 44 businesses participated, representing a wide range of job opportunities in manufacturing, construction, welding, social services, entertainment, health, military, financial services, insurance and many more. Alice Bjergum, PHR Sr. Human Resources Rep. for Textron Fastening Systems stated, “last year’s job fair was a very positive experience for us. The event was well organized and provided an opportunity to offer information to interested candidates.”

A business has a choice to either reserve a booth for $75 or becoming a sponsor for $200. The benefits of a sponsor include printed media publicity prior to the fair, radio adverting and a live radio interview spot during the fair, while hosting a display at a premium booth location. A new and improved fair layout is being planned this year for increased exposure to potential employees. To register call (800) 728-2256 extension 399. For more information contact Kelli Smutzler at (800) 728-2256 extension 214 or Wendy Mihm-Herold at (563) 380-3733.
