(Washington, D.C.) – The 6th Congressional District Job Fair in Lawrenceburg was a big success last Thursday.  More than 200 job seekers came through Ivy Tech Community college and had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with over 65 employers from across the region.

“Thanks to committed community partners and engaged regional employers we had a great job fair in Lawrenceburg last week.   I’m glad we were able to give Hoosiers who are either unemployed or under employed the opportunity to meet with dozens of businesses in our area looking to hire.”

The 6th District Job Fair in Lawrenceburg was hosted in conjunction with WorkOne Southeast and the Dearborn County Commissioners.


Dearborn County Commissioner Kevin Lynch said, “I am thankful to our Congressman, Luke Messer for his attendance and personal touch. It is very apparent, by his actions and time spent with those participating in this event that he truly cares. We are overwhelmed by the positive feedback received during and immediately following this event. It is a great feeling to see our community come together in such a unified manner, when this happens we are destined to achieve and succeed. I greatly appreciate the dedication and professionalism of everyone involved with this Job Fair.”

This is the second year Congressman Messer has teamed up with WorkOne Southeast and the Dearborn County Commissioners for the Lawrenceburg Job Fair.
