Dear valued Career Connect partners,

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has asked that we limit face-to-face, large group gatherings for the foreseeable future to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), and though Marietta College or surrounding counties have not had any confirmed cases of the virus to date, the College is honoring the Governor’s request.

One of the measures Marietta College’s Task Force on COVID-19 has recommended is to postpone the upcoming Career Connect Job Fair for a later date. We know how important this event is for our community and are currently exploring later dates or other ways to virtually connect employers with potential employees.

We will provide updates on our website, on social media, through phone calls, and via email as to our next steps. Thank you for your patience as we navigate through this time.  The Career Connect partners (Washington County Jobs and Family Services, Marietta College, Washington State Community College, the Washington County Career Center, BB2C) and the Career Connect executive committee will be meeting on Monday to consider alternatives.  I will email you after that with more information.

If you have any questions, concerns or ideas, please feel free to contact me or other members of Career Connect.

More information:

Marietta College is hosting Career Connect job fair on March 19th in the Marietta College Dyson-Baudo Recreation Center.  There is no cost for employers or job seekers.

The partners have all come together to hold one large and inclusive career fair that replaces the multiple smaller events previously held throughout the region. The fair will serve all job seekers, employers, Washington County high school students, college students, and educational institutions in the Mid-Ohio Valley.  This event will reinforce the Mid-Ohio Valley’s desire and need to connect students and adults of all ages to educational and workplace options in order to promote economic independence and a thriving educational and economic environment in the Mid-Ohio Valley.

Booth space is available for employers and service providers to register for now.  Your application for space will be reviewed, and you will receive a confirmation email when complete.  Only W2 issuers, please. Booth space is free, and we will provide you with two box lunches per booth.  Additional lunches wil be available for a fee.

For job seekers - in addition to networking with the employers, we will also offer resume critiques, interview attire help, and career/educational coaching prior to the event and during the event.
