A job fair with the goal of connecting area employers with potential new hires will be held Wednesday, Sept. 28, at the Red Lion Hotel at the Quay in Vancouver.

Employers are currently being sought to participate in the event, which is being hosted by Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Camas).

The concept for the job fair came after Herrera Beutler held a job creator forum in Vancouver in August, when employers said they were challenged to find qualified applicants.

“Job creation continues to be one of my top priorities,” Herrera Beutler said. “We need to get Southwest Washington working again, and this jobs fair will provide a venue for residents to connect with job-creators in our region.”

The forum will be held from 1 to 6 p.m., and is free and open to all Southwest Washington citizens looking for employment opportunities. Employers interested in participating should contact Pam Peiper at 695-6292.
