(Rock County, WI) Gregg Bosak, SWWDB

Three free drive-thru job fairs are being offered from noon-4 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15 in Janesville, Beloit and Monroe. It is part of a statewide, unified effort to let job seekers know that there are still opportunities available in our area.

The three locations include the Janesville Mall (near the old J.C. Penney parking lot), 2500 Milton Ave., Janesville; the Beloit Public Library near the Eclipse Center (in the Blackhawk Tech tent), 605 Eclipse Blvd., Beloit; and the parking lot of the Blackhawk Tech campus, 210 4th Ave, Monroe.

There is no cost for companies and businesses to provide a one-page recruitment flyer in packets that are being assembled for the event. They are due by July 8 at 4 p.m. Flyers can be printed on one or both sides of an 8.5” X 11” page or smaller. It can include the company name, location and logo; available positions; how to apply; details about the company benefits and/or wages; what makes the company special and services or products provided; and contact information is a job seeker would like to reach out to the company. The flyer must include the company’s equal opportunity statement.

Each car attending the event will be given one bag by staff wearing gloves and masks. 

While the majority of Wisconsin’s Job Centers remain closed, including those in the SWWD’s six-county district, members of the Wisconsin Workforce Development Association (WWDA)’s 11 districts have developed this statewide initiative. For a listing of all locations statewide, open positions, and instructions for job seekers, visit this link.
