Job fair draws more than 300 people

| September 16, 2016

COSHOCTON – The job fair, sponsored by Ohio Means Jobs Coshocton County on Thursday, Sept. 15, was a success. With more than 50 vendors looking to hire and more than 300 people attending by 1 p.m., Lake Park Pavilion was the place to be for those in need of a job.

The Columbus VA Mobile Health Unit was on hand to help veterans who were coming to the job fair apply for VA health benefits.

“We are able to determine their eligibility right here,” said Scott Weyand, outreach coordinator for Columbus VA. “We have a nurse here on site and can do an enrollment physical on the spot.”

The Coshocton County Veterans Service Office contacted the Columbus VA to let them know about the job fair and the Columbus VA saw it as an opportunity to reach out to veterans.

“We’ve had quite a few veterans come through today,” said Weyand. “It’s been well worth our while to come.”
