Job seekers in the Fox Cities area are invited to meet with more than 80 employers seeking to fill roles at the  Annual Oshkosh Area Job Fair being held from 3-6 pm on Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2023, at  Sunnyview Exposition Center, 500 E County Y, Oshkosh. Admission to the job fair is free. 

Those who visit with at least five employers will receive $15 worth of food vouchers to be used  from 4-7 p.m. at a food truck rally being held in conjunction with the job fair.  

Employers represented at the fair have a wide mix of available positions including office, service, logistics,  manufacturing, healthcare, and other professional positions. Available jobs may be entry level or more skilled,  seasonal, temporary, full and part-time. In just three hours, job seekers can  meet with employer representatives to discuss openings, pass along a resume or just learn more  about the companies.  

Each job seeker will be encouraged to visit a minimum of five employers at the job fair  and, after doing so, will receive $15 worth of free food vouchers for the food truck rally outside.  Additional visits to sponsor booths will allow job seekers to be registered to win $150 cash cards.  The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Mobile Job Center will be  present showing off the latest in mobile technology.

Movie and military vehicle lovers may also want to stop by the Oshkosh Corporation booth to visit “The Hound,” a vehicle that appeared in the hit  films “Transformers: Age of Extinction” and “Transformers: The Last Knight.” 

“We welcome any and all job seekers to attend the fair. We’ve worked hard to make this  year’s event bigger and better than ever. There are jobs to get, meals to eat, debit cards to win,  and some fun all in one place” Fox Valley Workforce  Development Board CEO Anthony Snyder said in a statement. “Too often, job seekers feel like they’re sending resumes into an abyss,”  said Snyder, “You might apply and hear nothing. Where else can you meet with more than 80 employers face-to-face in just one day?”  

All job seekers regardless of age, education and work  experience are welcome. Some employers will offer on-site interviews while others will be  accepting resumes and will schedule interviews at a later date. There is no dress code for the event, but job seekers are encouraged to dress for the role  they are seeking and are urged to bring updated resumes. A complete list of all current employers  registered can be found on the Fox Valley Workforce Development Board web site at  www.foxvalleywork.org. Individuals interested in scheduling a meeting with a career planner  to refresh a resume can contact the Fox Cities Job Center – Menasha via the web site at  www.foxvalleyjobcenters.com or by calling 920-997-3272.
