Greencastle career fair offers chance to meet employers, see Ivy Tech

Many leading western Indiana employers will be on hand to connect with jobseekers during an upcoming career fair in Greencastle.
 
The public also will get a chance to tour Ivy Tech Community College during the career fair, set for 10 am to 3 pm Tuesday, Jan. 25.
 
While the career fair is free and open to the public, it primarily will focus on current and former employees from Indiana Automotive Components in Greencastle. The company told the State of Indiana in December it would lay off 125 workers. 
 
Approximately 26 employers, including Great Dane Brazil, Kroger, Crown Equipment, J&N Metal, the Indiana Dept. of Corrections, Plumbers & Steamfitters Local 157, Terre Haute Convention Center, Putnam County Hospital and Walmart, will have booths at the job fair.
 
Those attending can not only connect with employers but tour the Ivy Tech facility’s labs and equipment used in real-world careers as well as learn about financial aid and WorkOne resources. Career guidance sessions will be offered. 
The career fair is organized by WorkOne Western Indiana, Ivy Tech Community College, and the Greencastle/Putnam County Development Center. 
 
“The City of Greencastle is very appreciative of the teamwork of Work One, Ivy Tech, and the Development Center in developing and hosting the job fair,” said Greencastle Mayor Bill Dory. “The wide range of employers participating in this job fair demonstrate the wide range of career and employment opportunities available in Greencastle, Putnam County and west central Indiana.”
