COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — The Urban One Job and Recruitment Fair held its first job fair of the year Wednesday at the King Arts Complex and organizers say events like these are vital to keeping the economy flowing.
One man says his company was one of the 22 that set up shop there to find educators who’d be good substitute teachers in schools across central Ohio.
“So many people are looking for help in the job market now, especially since COVID. A lot of things have shifted and a lot of things have changed. There’s so many more opportunities that people aren’t aware of. So this type of environment and this type of event gives people the opportunity to reach out to companies and touch companies and real decision-makers in those companies,” said Orlando Austin of Thomas Austin Staffing.
