Representative from Manpower talks with residents seeking work at SDC W-2 Spring Career Fair.
Milwaukee residents seeking work connected with potential employers at the Spring Career Fair held by the Social Development Commission (SDC) W-2 program.
Two dozen firms took applications and offered information on job openings at the job fair held at the Wisconsin Army National Guard Armory on North Richards Street.
The morning-long event was organized by the Job’s effort of the W-2 Program and attracted more than 700 people.
The goal of the day was to link Milwaukee County residents seeking work with employment opportunities.
A wide range of employers were busy talking with many potential new employees at the Career Fair.
They included Manpower International, Masterson Personnel, Outpost Foods, Home Depot, Wells Fargo Bank, Avon, and Wisconsin Security Police Services.
A number of SDC programs were represented as well including the Transitional Jobs and Youth and Family Development programs.
The Spring Career Fair is the latest in a series of job finding events put on by the SDC W-2 program.
Future fairs will be held at individual W-2 field sites across the county in coming weeks.
