Milwaukee County is looking to empower people toward employment by holding two job fairs this week, County Executive Chris Abele announced today.
Wednesday’s career fair seeks to connect applicants with jobs at Milwaukee County, while Friday’s job fair gives veterans and their families an opportunity to connect with more than 50 regional employers.
