Northside and Southside events take place next Wednesday (October 27, 2021) from noon to 4 p.m.
The City of Milwaukee Office of Workforce Development will be holding Northside and Southside Drive-Thru Job Fairs on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 for Milwaukee Job Seekers looking for immediate employment opportunities.
The Job fair events are enthusiastically supported by Common Council President Cavalier Johnson (2nd District); and Council Members Ashanti Hamilton (1st District); Nikiya Dodd (5th District); Milele A. Coggs (6th District); Chantia Lewis (9th District) and José Pérez (12th District) as a creative way to bring immediate job opportunities to residents (where they live) and in a manner that is safe during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic recovery.
The Drive-Thru Job Fairs will focus on neighborhoods within the 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th and 12th Aldermanic Districts, all of which have been hit hard by COVID-19. All attendees will receive a no-contact bag packed with information on employment assistance programs and employers hiring right now, and the events will feature 50 + employers from manufacturing, office, healthcare, retail, transportation/logistics and much more.
The Drive-Thru Job Fair events on October 27th are co-sponsored by Milwaukee Common Council, DirectConnectMKE, Northwest Side CDC, State Department of Workforce Development, Job Center of Wisconsin, Employ Milwaukee, Social Development Commission, the Milwaukee Urban League, Milwaukee Public Schools, UMOS, Inc., and the City of Milwaukee.
