People looking for a new career path will get a helping hand from three local groups. The city of La Crosse, La Crosse County and the La Crosse School District will host a career fair on Tuesday, July 24.
To help accommodate more residents, the career fair will be held in two locations this year. Representatives from the partner agencies will first be at the Black River Beach Neighborhood Center at 1433 Rose St. from 1 to 3 p.m. Then the career fair moves to the Southside Neighborhood Center 1300 S. Sixth St. from 4 to 6 p.m.
“Our organizations have been working very closely over the past nine years in order to maximize efficiencies, professionally develop staff, and problem-solve complex issues facing the community,” said Mark White, director of human resources for the school district. “The career fair is another positive example of this collaboration helping our community to grow even stronger.”
Examples of positions routinely needing to be hired include teacher assistants, custodial services, substitute staff, information technology, food nutrition, nursing home services, bus operators, mechanics and clerical support.
The career fair is free and open to the public. It will allow interested participants to meet with hiring managers and become more familiar with career opportunities offered by the district, La Crosse County and the city of La Crosse.
