PRINCETON—Gibson County residents seeking a job have the opportunity to meet with 29 employers Tuesday.

The Princeton Daily Clarion and Mount Carmel Register host the fourth annual job fair from 3-7 p.m. Tuesday at Gibson County Fairgrounds Activities Building. All attendees are also entered for a chance to win a $50 gas gift card.

Maggie Armstrong, event coordinator and classified manager, said the job fair is slated to be the biggest one yet. “We have a higher volume of employers and a higher volume of jobs available than we did in the past,” she said.

Jobs available range from a secretary, teacher, food prep associate and other full and part time positions.

With more jobs available it’s important for job seekers to dress for an interview since some employers will interview at the event, said Armstrong. Also, bring in a new resume.

“Be ready to talk to employers and some are hiring on the spot,” she said.

Armstrong said job seekers who may need to fine tune or start a resume can visit WorkOne Southwest’s booth to get help. “The goal is to help the community find a job that they want,” she said.

Armstrong said many people say there aren’t jobs out there, but there are. “If you want to work, let these people help you find a job,” she said.

Job seekers who want to advance or change their career can also visit Ivy Tech and Vincennes University representatives about different options for classes. “We like helping people get better jobs. It helps the community and economy,” Armstrong said.
