Help for Job Hunters

March 16th, 2012 at 2:41 pm by under Eric Halvorson's Blog

For a lot of us — too many of us — the “Help Wanted” sign still represents a dream.  They want jobs.  They just haven’t been able to find anything. 

The state gave us good news this week when it reported Indiana’s unemployment rate dropped a bit from December to January. 

Indianapolis City-County Councillor Marilyn Pfisterer wants that trend to continue.  That’s why she wants to make sure everyone is aware of another job fair — the 8th – she’s arranged. 

Councillor Pfisterer told me, over the years, she’s heard so many humbling stories at these fairs.  One of them probably dates back to the first fair.   She said a man rode his bike from Boone County.  He reached the job fair two hours before it opened.  Pfisterer said that’s how determined he was to get a job.  And, that helps inspire her to continue this service in her west side district.

This year’s session will be at Lakeview Church on Tuesday, April 3rd, from 10 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon.

Job hunters will find openings in business, in city government and at state agencies.
