150 temporary jobs were up for grabs Wednesday at a job fair in Mishawaka. So many people showed up to the fair they temporarily ran out of applications.
Goodwill facilitated the event, and all of those hired will be working for hiring agency Labor Ready.
They will be doing various things from working in a factory, working retail, cleaning, housekeeping and more. Everyone signed in, went through different assessments, filled out an application, then were screened. Some even got hired on the spot.
“Temporary jobs as we know can always turn into permanent jobs so when you are willing to work any kind of jobs and get that on your resume and get that in your history when you are talking to an employer that will look at that and that is a good thing,” says Debie Coble the VP of Workforce Development Services.
Coble said when going to a job fair like this, makes sure you are dressed for an interview, have a pen, resume, references and most importantly have an attitude showing that you are ready to work.
