Media release from U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski on June 1, 2017: 

MISHAWAKA, Ind. – More than 175 Hoosiers today attended a jobs fair hosted by U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) that featured 55 employers, 10 veterans service organizations, and more than 1,200 job openings. The Jobs and Veterans Resource Fair took place at Bethel College and was free and open to the public.

“Bringing together job-seekers and our local job creators is a great way to help Hoosiers find new opportunities and keep our economy growing,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “Northern Indiana is home to some our nation’s most innovative businesses and hardworking employees. I’m excited that so many people were able to connect with potential employers and that veterans had a chance to learn about the important resources available to help those who served.”

Before the jobs fair opened, employers participated in a seminar conducted by WorkOne, a career training and job placement center under the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. The seminar aimed to help local businesses more effectively recruit, hire, train, and retain workers.

Walorski greeted the employers and encouraged them to take advantage of the opportunity to hire new employees from the talented, dedicated Hoosier workforce.

“I want to thank WorkOne for all their help in making today’s jobs fair a success,” Walorski said. “I’m grateful for the incredible work they do across Indiana to help Hoosiers pursue their careers and succeed in the 21st century economy.”

Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
