Local higher education joins forces to match employers with quality workforce

Mark your calendar for The Annual Marion Campus Career and Education Fair, hosted by The Ohio State University at Marion, Marion Technical College, and Marion Connections Workforce Development Center, Thursday, February 24, 2011, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Alber Student Center on the Marion Campus, 1465 Mount Vernon Avenue, Marion.
 
The Annual Marion Campus Career and Education Fair brings together area businesses, organizations, and educational/training opportunities with qualified and motivated potential employees, consumers, and clients throughout Crawford, Delaware, Hardin, Marion, Morrow, Union, and Wyandot Counties.
 
According to organizers from all three institutions, employers who take part in the annual career and education fair will benefit from the potential access to over 4000 Marion campus students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members. As is the case each year, employers have the opportunity to showcase their company, products, and services in a centralized location. More important, they have the opportunity to meet highly qualified individuals for summer, temporary, or permanent employment in central/north central Ohio. Since the event focus on both career and education, it is an invaluable community service to those who want to learn more about educational opportunities in our area as well.
