WASHINGTON - Congressman Luke Messer is gearing up to host the 18th Annual 6th Congressional District Job Fair. The yearly event, which has become a tradition for the area, draws dozens of employers from across the region who are looking to hire.
“Thanks to strong leadership in our state, Indiana’s unemployment rate is less than 6-percent,” said Congressman Luke Messer. “But, that’s still too high. In this struggling economy, too many hard-working Hoosiers are having a difficult time finding good-paying jobs. That’s why I’m glad we’re able to partner with some great local organizations to host the 6th District Job Fair again this year.”
The job fair will take place Wednesday, July 2, 2014, at Ball State University’s Worthen Arena and is open to the general public from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Veterans can get in one hour early, from 1 to 2 p.m., for some one-on-one time with employers.
Admission to the job fair is free and no pre-registration for attendees is required. For those who need transportation to the job fair, Muncie Indiana Transit System (MITS) is providing FREE rides to anyone who presents a job fair flier when boarding a bus from 1 to 4:30 p.m. on July 2. You can pick up a flier at Congressman Messer’s office in Muncie located at 107 W. Charles St. or at WorkOne located at 201 E. Charles St. The flier is also available online at www.messer.house.gov.
