Employ Up tried something new this year. We hosted a Career Expo designed to give Employ Up participants a private audience with eager Central Indiana employers and training partners ready to interview and hire skilled talent.
The Employ Up Career Expo attracted 32 employer and training partners and 70 Employ Up participants. The expo room was filled with a constant hum of activity.
The employer and training partners received a handbook filled with the resumes of each Employ Up participant who attended the event. Interviews were taking place in all corners of the Career Expo hall. Business cards were being exchanged and job training and new career opportunities were uncovered.
In total, four Employ Up participants received job offers. 70 Employ Up participants honed their interview skills and had front door access for follow up interviews and conversations.
