Attention businesses recruiting employees: Employers are invited to register now to attend Regional Job Fairs 2006. Two Opportunities to Recruit ---- Two Locations to Serve You Better----Recruiting Made Easy!

Iowa Workforce Development’s Regional Job Fairs 2006 invites area businesses to recruit candidates from Northwest Iowa who are actively seeking employment by reserving space to showcase your business. At the 2005 Regional Job Fairs, over 50 businesses participated, representing a wide rage of job opportunities in manufacturing, construction, welding, social services, entertainment, health, military, financial services, and many more. Comments from businesses included “I hired on the spot”, “exposure was valuable”, “good candidates”, “as long as I was able to get one possible worker/lead/prospect, it was worth it”, and “I was able to network with other employers and service providers”. The events were well organized and provided an opportunity to offer information and job opportunities to interested candidates.
