Job fair Tuesday, hundreds of positions open

Jobs are out there.

Debbie Davis, leader of the NCWorks Career Center-Rowan, says her office is currently trying to help area employers fill some 400 positions.

Many of those employers will be on hand Tuesday for the Veterans Appreciation and Community Job Fair coming up 2-4 p.m. at the West End Plaza.

The job fair is open to all. It will include recognition for veterans and some groups that provide services to veterans.

Industries represented include manufacturing, banking, health care, law enforcement, local government, higher education, staffing and more.

Davis says the job fair will offer great opportunities for the public — veterans included — “to meet and discuss quality job openings with some wonderful employers.”

Jobs available will include permanent and temporary, full-time and part-time positions.
