Seward County Community College and the Liberal Chamber of Commerce are hosting the Southwest Kansas Regional Job Fair Wednesday, February 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Seward County Activity Center.

Close to 50 businesses will be represented at the fair, looking for prospective employees. The job fair is free and open to the public.

According to Norma Jean Dodge, SCCC director of business and industry, the fair is a great resource for the students as well as the community.

“Students are looking for summer employment or they want to connect with someone early,” Dodge said. “There are quite a few businesses that could employ them once they’re done with school or even now and then they’ll hire them on (permanently) when they’re done.”

Dodge added that the fair also gives those people looking for jobs the opportunity to meet the employers face-to-face while employers can gauge the job market climate by meeting with other businesses.

“I think it’s important to connect employers with people who are seeking jobs,” Dodge said. “They can have that one-to-one meeting with the employer and talk to them. And for the employers, it’s a great resource to network and talk to other businesses.”

Among the various businesses expected at the fair, include Meade State Park, Oklahoma Panhandle State University, National Beef, Seward County, car dealerships, banks, and hospitals.
