Battle Creek job fair features more than 3 dozen employers

Kellogg Arena, 36 W. Hamblin Ave., Battle Creek, soon will be the site of a regional job fair where job seekers can be introduced to more than 36 employers.

The job fair, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, April 17.

Interviews for some job candidates may be scheduled onsite from 1 to 3 p.m. All candidates should dress professionally and bring resumes to distribute to employers.

The job fair takes place twice a year. The Battle Creek Regional Job Fair held last fall drew more than 40 organizations, which offered candidates more than 170 jobs at the fair and more than 290 job interviews, says Patrick Casey, director of Career and Employment Services at Kellogg Community College and an organizer of the event.

Job seekers are encouraged to pre-register for the event onlineThere they can view available jobs, receive job-seeking tips and information on Michigan Works! Employment Workshops and receive future Battle Creek Regional Job Fair updates.
