A job fair in Franklin this month will include more than 50 companies and about 900 jobs.
Central Indiana residents looking for work will be able to interview for jobs, get help with their resumes and attend a training on how to transition from the military to working as a civilian.
The job fair, hosted by the WorkOne career services agency, will be Oct. 10 at the Franklin National Guard armory building, near Interstate 65 and State Road 44. Employers will be looking to fill about 900 jobs in companies in central Indiana, including Johnson County, Shelby County, Columbus and the south side of Marion County, Jan Reese, WorkOne county coordinator, said.
The jobs range from entry-level retail positions to jobs in accounting, engineering and health care, Reese said. All of the positions are permanent or temporary positions planned to become permanent, and many of them are full-time with benefits, she said. Most of the food service and retail jobs offered are part-time.
Jobs include truck driving, warehouse or manufacturing positions, and the skill levels and types of companies vary. The salaries offered range from minimum wage to $50,000 per year or more.
WorkOne employees will also be able to proofread resumes, but they will need to be printed before the event, Reese said. Job seekers should dress professionally and bring multiple copies of their resume.
