City and Chamber of Commerce Partner to Sponsor Grove City Job Fair

The economy and unemployment continue to be a concern for all. Determined to help, the City of Grove City and the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce have partnered to sponsor the first-ever Grove City Job Fair.

The event will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 3220 Columbus St., Grove City.

“We contacted our Chamber members to see if they had hiring needs, and in three hours I had 16 responses,” said Bill Diehl, Chamber executive director.

Nearly 50 employers with staffing needs are eager to meet with job seekers. Experienced advisors will be available to discuss resume-writing and employability tips.

Ohio Needs Jobs representatives will offer live demonstrations on how to find a job online. Participants learn how to post a resume online at no cost. Ohio Needs Jobs promotes local, regional and national job opportunities.

“This is such an important event and a great example of the City and Chamber working together,” said Mayor Richard L. “Ike” Stage. “This job fair will provide a tremendous economic opportunity for both our citizens and businesses.”
