Employment coalition hosting job fair on Wednesday

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- An employment coalition made up of the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee (HACM), Guest House and WCS Parsons House will host a job fair on Wednesday, April 24th.

The job fair will be held at the HACM Community Services Building, located at 650 W. Reservoir, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose room.

The job fair is open to the public and all are welcome to attend. More than 30 local employers are expected to participate and have immediate openings.

The job fair aims to connect those looking for a job with Milwaukee-area employers, including the Milwaukee County Zoo, TCF Bank, Home Depot and others. Employers at the job fair will be looking to fill immediate openings at primarily entry-level positions.

The Housing Authority, Guest House and WCS Parsons also partnered with the Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board to prepare almost 100 job seekers for Wednesday’s event through a job-readiness class, offering assistance with interview preparation, résumé writing and basic job-seeking skills.
