The Deer Park Branch of the Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library is hosting a public service sector job fair, opens a new window this Thursday, June 30, 4–7 p.m.
“Because of the low unemployment rate, employers are working hard to find good employees,” David Siders, CHPL’s Civic Engagement Coordinator said. “This unique public sector job fair will connect quality, community-oriented jobs with people who may not know how to get these types of jobs, which often have great benefits and livable wages. We are thankful for our partners for helping us put this on and hope many job-seekers will find us Thursday.”
