The Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the West Kentucky Workforce Board to offer a Drive-By Job Fair on Wednesday, September 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot behind The Commerce Center, located at the corner of Washington Street and 3rd Street.
If your business has positions to fill, visit paducahchamber.org to find the Job Fair form. Employers do not have to be present.
The Drive-By Job Fair will be a no-contact event. Job seekers can drive through to pick up a roster of job openings and then apply for positions by submitting their resumes on the spot. Following the event, resumes will be submitted electronically to participating employers. Participation does not guarantee placement.
The event is being held as part of the Paducah Chamber’s Small Business Celebration. More than half of America's workforce is employed by a small business. For those who have been displayed or lost their job due to the COVID-19 crisis, there has never been a better time to join the ranks of those who have found their ideal career within a small business.
“We are excited to be partnering with the Workforce Board to provide this job fair,” said Sandra Wilson, Chamber President. “We hope this event will help our local businesses find good, qualified employees and help local citizens who have lost their job due to the pandemic to find gainful employment.”
