Jefferson County Job Fair
The Jefferson County Job Fair Committee consisting of Ivy Tech Community College, WorkOne, The Madison Chamber of Commerce and Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG), invites you to reserve a booth for the Jefferson County Job Fair that will be held Thursday, April 18, 2019 from 10:00 A.M.- 6:00 P.M.
FOR STUDENTS: Dress your best, grab your resume, and come chat with employers of all disciplines from around the area about opportunities for part-time, seasonal, internship or full-time after graduation opportunities. If you do not have a resume or want to make sure your resume is as good as it can be, contact Nina Alcorn for an appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org or go on Ivy Advising to schedule an appointment.
FOR EMPLOYERS: There will be several opportunities for participation throughout the day. Three Reverse Career Fairs will be going on throughout the day: Industrial Technology- Madison Correctional Facility Students (CNC, Welding, MSSC), Industrial Technology- High School Welding Students, Ivy Tech Business Students. If you are unfamiliar with this model, this is where students set up tables complete with a resume, portfolio and other relevant items to engage employers about their skills and achievements. Employers walk around and speak to students and look through displays at their leisure. Employers are encouraged to chat with students and discuss their tables.
The Student Job Fair will be a portion of the traditional Job Fair only open to students from surrounding high schools: Madison, Southwestern, Shawe Memorial and Christian Academy, as well as Ivy Tech students and Southeastern Indiana Career Center students. We have also invited Jobs for American's Graduates (JAG) Students from Milan, South Ripley, Jac-Cen-Del and Madison. Special thanks to the Madison JAG students working as volunteers today!
The Veteran's Job Fair will be from 2:00 P.M.- 2:30 P.M. This time slot is open to Veterans only.
The Job Fair will be open to the public from 2:30 P.M.- 6:00 P.M.
We encourage employers to dedicate the entire day to all of the exciting opportunities provided to find good, qualified employees.
