The West Kentucky Workforce Board has teamed up with a group of local partners to sponsor a job fair on Tuesday, August 23 at the Julian Carroll Convention Center.

The Western Kentucky Regional Career Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Convention Center, located at 415 Park Street in Paducah.

Employers can visit wkworkforce.work to register or call the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce at 270-443-1746.

The job fair will give workers the opportunity to learn about companies that are hiring in the Paducah area, meet their human resources teams and ask questions. Job seekers can explore full-time or part-time jobs in multiple industry sectors, from positions requiring no high school diploma or GED to positions requiring advanced college degrees. Job seekers can find their first job or a job after retirement.

Do you need a resume? Or extra copies of your resume? Do you need to apply for a job online? The Kentucky Career Center will be on hand to help job seekers create a resume or submit applications online.

Additionally, the West Kentucky Reentry Council and its partners will be available to assist anyone with expungement needs. You can receive a free copy of your file or meet with a lawyer.

“We have brought together an exceptional group of partners to deliver this event,” said Workforce Board CEO Sheila Clark. “Each partner brings a unique set of skills to help us focus on employers’ needs and educate job seekers on how to use a job fair to find a job.”

McCracken County Executive Judge Craig Clymer said, “This is a great one-stop shop for bringing together good employers and good employees. »

Paducah Mayor George Bray said the city was also proud to sponsor the event. “Last year’s career fair was a resounding success, and we look forward to building on that success on August 23,” said Bray. “At some point in our country’s history, it has been more necessary than now for employers and new recruits to come together. I strongly encourage those looking to advance their career to attend to meet potential employers, explore the many career opportunities in this field, and connect with various resources that may be helpful in finding an employer that is right for them.

Funding for the event is provided by the Kentucky Education and Labor Cabinet, Department of Workforce Development and US Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, City of Paducah, McCracken County Fiscal Court, Four Rivers Society of Human Resource Managers , Greater Paducah Economic Development Corporation, Kentucky Career Center and the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce. Additional support is provided by the West Kentucky Reentry Council and its partners: the Commonwealth Court of Justice, the Kentucky Department of Corrections, and Kentucky Legal Aid.
