More than 40 companies in the region will participate in the Missouri Job Center’s first big hiring event of the year on January 22, from 3:00 – 6:00 pm. The event will be held at the Missouri Job Center, 2900 E. Sunshine, in Springfield.

While attending the hiring event, job seekers may also visit the Skill Up Information Fair. Attendees can talk to local higher education and trade schools to see how they may qualify for free training scholarships for short-term training programs in industries with high demand for skilled workers.

“We are excited to add the Skill Up Information Fair component to the hiring event,” said Jamie Moss, Senior Workforce Specialist with the Missouri Job Center. These are short-term trainings offered in high growth industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, IT and construction. Participants can be working in a matter of weeks or months, Moss said.

At the hiring event, there will be representatives from area companies available to answer questions about job openings at their companies. Attendees should dress appropriately and bring copies of their resume if possible.

For information about the event, please contact Katherine Trombetta at 417-841-3389 or ktrombetta@springfieldmo.gov.
