(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Ivy Tech Community College in Lawrenceburg is the place to be Thursday if you’re looking for work or perhaps a new job.

Indiana Sixth District Congressman Luke Messer and his office have organized the 2nd Annual 6th District Job Fair and Employer Seminar. Ivy Tech, WorkOne Southeast, and Dearborn County Commissioners are partnering with Messer to make the job fair happen.

Local businesses are invited to an employer seminar with a catered lunch from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Speakers from Old National and the Indiana Department of Workforce Development will present information on the Affordable Care Act and services offered by WorkOne.

A special early hour for military veterans only starts at 1:00 p.m. The job fair will then open to the general public from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m.

“Thanks to strong leadership in our state, Indiana’s unemployment rate is less than 6-percent,” says Congressman Messer. “But, that’s still too high.  In this struggling economy too many hard-working Hoosiers are having a difficult time finding good-paying jobs.  That’s why I’m glad we’re able to partner with some great local organizations to host two job fairs this summer with dozens of regional employers looking to hire.”

The job fair is free to all attending. No pre-registration is required.
