The positions are in the automotive, home appliance and packaging and shipping fields, including clerical positions and, are mainly entry level with opportunities to grow.

“We need someone who is going to show up,” Barry said. “Most of the jobs are 40 hours a week, a lot of them offering overtime and so this is a good way to get your foot in the door,” he added.

 Barry said they’re working toward getting more people back into the workforce.

“Getting up every day, going to work, having someplace to go instead of just being at home.”

The current hiring companies are taking safety measures to make sure those who are starting work are protected from COVID-19.

“They are providing PPE, making sure they’re socially distant, having the proper barriers up and taking temperatures,” Barry said.

The job fair runs through Thursday.
