The Goodwill Manasota Job Connection program will host a job fair on Wednesday at its corporate campus, located at 2705 51st Ave. E. in Bradenton.
More than 40 companies in Manatee and Sarasota companies are expected to attend, all with job openings they are seeking to fill. The event is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“When people have jobs, they have security – a step in the right direction on the road to self-sufficiency,” said Bob Rosinsky, the president and CEO of Goodwill Manasota. “We are thrilled with the number of local companies who will be present during our job fair and are hopeful that job seekers will enjoy success during the event.”
Several industries will be represented during the event, including manufacturing, food service and production, hospitality and retail. Others are nonprofits, government entities and health care organizations.
The Goodwill Manasota Job Connection program is designed to help individuals obtain long-term employment or transition to better-paying jobs.
