The Ellis County Coalition for Economic Development will host the annual Hays Area Job Fair at Big Creek Crossing on April 11 from 3 to 6 p.m. The job fair has been in place since 2011.
“It is a good time of the year to host this event because there will be college students graduating looking for jobs and even some possible summer employment,” said Ernee Sly, office manager for the Ellis County Coalition of Economic Development.
There will be a wide variety of job opportunities from several business sectors. Employers are hoping for a pool of applicants, while prospects are hoping to find something they are interested in or haven’t even thought of before.
The booth registration is $50, which is due by March 21. Employers can also be an event sponsor for $100. The sponsors of the job fair are Hess Services, Rebel Staffing, Wilken’s Manufacturing, KANSASWORKS and Big Creek Crossing.
