Employers and jobseekers will be at the Athens Community Center next week for a job fair.
The job fair will be from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Wednesday April 17.
Job and Family Services Community Coordinator Nick Claussen said that many employers from the region attend the event.
“I know in the past years we've had like 70 employers,” he said. “It just depends on different and what people have going on.”
Area residents of Athens, Meigs and Perry counties are invited to attend the event featuring a wide range of employers from all across the region.
“A lot of people who have gone to the job fair have told us that they've gotten jobs through the connections they've made there, Claussen said. “I think last year we had 30 or 40 people tell us that.”
The Perry County one-stop Jobs Center is providing transportation to and from the event for Perry County residents.
