Rep. Petri says the following:
I realize that in today's job market it can be a struggle for individuals to find work, and for businesses to find qualified, skilled labor. With this job fair, it's my intention to provide a venue for employers to meet face-to-face with workers seeking new employment opportunities.
My job fair is being held in conjunction with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, Oshkosh Workforce Development Board, and the Office of Veterans Assistance. Special veterans' hiring assistance will be provided at the event.
In addition to more than 80 employers seeking to fill positions, the job fair also will feature four workshops conducted by the Oshkosh Area Workforce Development Center. The schedule is as follows:
