Career Expo on May 9 to showcase in-demand jobs

CINCINNATI, Ohio – The United Way of Greater Cincinnati and Partners for a Competitive Workforce are hosting a Career Expo & Hiring Event on May 9 to spread the word that many good-paying jobs are available locally in supply chain, construction, manufacturing and health care industries. The expo is being held during Ohio’s In-Demand Jobs Week, which is May 6-10 this year.

“These sectors are seeing significant growth in the Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana region, with a promising outlook,” said Greg Hudson, adjunct supply chain management at Gateway Community & Technical College.

The Career Expo & Hiring Event will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 9 at Southern Hills Post-Secondary Campus, 2225 Hales Way, Mt. Orab, Ohio 45154. More than 20 companies representing these growth industries will be participating.

The event will have two sessions. The first session, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., will be restricted to Batavia/Goshen/Williamsburg students. The second session, from 2-4 p.m., will be open to all adults seeking employment in any of the listed sectors.

More than 200 jobs in Ohio are considered “in demand,” based on labor market information, job postings on OhioMeansJobs.com, JobsOhio regional forecasts and employer forecasts.

In-Demand Jobs Week is an opportunity for students and job seekers to learn more about the rewarding and high-demand careers available locally.
