On Friday I helped host a second annual regional job fair, in conjunction with Maysville Community and Technical College and my workforce development counterparts in the Northern Kentucky region. This is a very unique partnership between two of Kentucky’s 10 workforce development regions (TENCO/NKY). No other regions partner like this to put on such a great event.
We had 50 companies register to attend in hopes of recruiting the best and brightest from around our area…and that doesn’t include the businesses we had to put on a waiting list due to the tremendous response. Among them were some names you are likely familiar with: Amazon, UPS, Stober, Castellini, Meadowview, National Guard, Tyson, Carmeuse. There were literally hundreds of job openings represented at the job fair.
