For job seekers in the area, the annual Hays area job fair is set to take place on Wednesday, April 5, at Big Creek Crossing in Hays. The fair is open to all ages and anyone in the area that is looking for their dream job or a new career path.
“Last year, we had close to 140 people attend,” said Ernee Sly of the Ellis County Coalition for Economic Development. “It is open to anybody – high schoolers, college kids, anyone looking for employment either part-time or full-time. Anyone can attend.”
The job fair is host to a number of different businesses looking to hire positions ranging from nurses and electricians to food services and police officers. According to Sly, there are some booths that are consistently looking for employment.
“We have several businesses that are always hiring. Manufacturers are looking for help, a lot of health care jobs. This time of the year there is seasonal work and hotel jobs,” Sly said. “We open this up to businesses in several area counties.”
