Looking for a new job or interested in a career change and want to be able to hand a prospective employer a resume?

The upcoming 2018 Brainerd Lakes Community Job Fair will provide an opportunity to meet employers who are seeking new employees and to see who is hiring. This event is planned 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 4 at Central Lakes College and is presented by Rural Minnesota Concentrated Employment Program, also known as Rural Minnesota CEP.

Employers will be seeking employees with skills in manufacturing, health care, home health, finance, education, hospitality/food, communications, automotive, law enforcement, government, and everything in between. Positions available will be full time, part time and seasonal opportunities.

Admission to this event is free but job seekers are advised to come dressed as they would for an interview with their resume ready to hand out. According to information from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, there is one employee for every four job openings in the current job market.

For tips on navigating the job fair, getting a resume updated or completed, interviewing or other questions, contact the Brainerd WorkForce Center at 218-828-2450.

"The WorkForce Center provides resources, career counseling and training to people looking to find new employment."

Hubbard Radio, Brainerd Dispatch, Central Lakes College and the Brainerd WorkForce Center are sponsors of this community event.
