Seeking work? With Kenosha County’s unemployment rate less than 4 percent, two job fairs in the coming days are made to order for anyone looking.
Both are free to attend, and overall, there will be more than 100 employers looking for workers.
The Kenosha News Career Fair — open to all ages — will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 24 at Gateway Technical College in the Madrigrano Auditorium.
The Kenosha County Job Center and ResCare Workforce Services are assisting with this event, which is expected to attract 60 employers seeking a variety of positions.
Here are tips for job seekers: Bring copies of your resume, dress like you would for an interview, be prepared to answer questions about yourself, show up with a great attitude, and do your research — know what companies will be there and learn something about the companies you are interested in working for before attending. If possible, apply online to the companies you are interested in before the event.

The Young Adult Job Fair — open to teens 14 to 18 years old — takes place today from 3 to 5 p.m. at Indian Trail High School and Academy, 6800 60th St.
It is sponsored by Business Solutions, Gateway Technical College, Goodwill, Job Center of Wisconsin, Job Corps, Kenosha County, Kenosha Unified School District, ResCare Workforce Services, Boys & Girls Club, DVR and WRTP.
Fifty area employers, including military and union trades, will be represented, looking to hire seasonal, part-time and full-time employees.
“Students are encouraged to bring a current resume, dress appropriately and be prepared to answer questions for potential employers,” wrote Cheryl Kothe, coordinator of career and technical education for the Kenosha Unified School District, in a column published in the Kenosha News.
“The event, which has seen great success in helping young adults find employment, is celebrating its third year. Jobs include certified nursing assistants, trade apprenticeships, cashiers, production employees, lifeguards, food service and many more. Students should contact their school counselors for a list of businesses that will be in attendance.”
