Those looking for work in Starke County’s manufacturing industry can stop by up to a dozen employers tomorrow. The Starke County Economic Development Foundation is partnering with WorkOne to host a job fair at Knox High School.
Lisa Dan, Executive Director of the Foundation, says there are all kinds of jobs in Knox Industrial Park, across the county and beyond. “We have a national issue underway,” she says. “There are so many vacancies and not enough people to fill them, and Starke County is not unique.”
Dan expects 10 to 12 companies to participate, along with a recruiting company that is recruiting for the Mammoth Solar project. The job fair will take place tomorrow from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Knox High School Multi-Purpose Room. Job seekers are asked to use door number 2.
It is part of the Starke County Economic Development Foundation’s annual Manufacturers‘ Day celebrations. While the public job fair is going on as planned, the opportunity for middle school students to meet with local manufacturers has been postponed due to COVID-19. On Thursday, however, the foundation’s prospectus and achievement luncheon will take place.
