Job Fair attracts large crowd

| October 23, 2014

COSHOCTON – Forty-seven businesses lined the walls and aisles of Lake Park Pavilion Oct. 23, with applications ready to potentially hire new employees. This was the first year that Ohio Means Jobs hosted an employment expo, and they hope to continue it each year. “If we make this an annual event, we want it to get bigger and bigger every year,” said Lynn Jacobs of Ohio Means Jobs – Coshocton County. “We are really happy with the responses from the businesses.” When entering the fair, each potential employee received a packet of all the jobs available and what they were looking for. They also had tables set up for filling out applications and a computer lab for completing online applications which was furnished by the state. “I think we hit this at the right time,” said Jacobs. “Gas prices are going down, unemployment is going down, and the economy is getting better. I think people are starting to feel better about the economy.”
