Sen. Bayh to host Annual Job Fair & Small Business Summit at Hulman Center

October 8 2008

Sen. Evan Bayh will host his sixth annual Job Fair, Job Training and Small Business Summit at Hulman Center from 2 - 6 p.m. on Oct. 14 to help connect job seekers with local businesses in this challenging economic environment.

Bayh, a member of the Senate Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship, encourages Hoosiers to take advantage of the myriad resources that will be made available to help workers. Last year, more than 5,000 job opportunities were available at Bayh-sponsored summits across the state.

Many area companies looking to hire will be at the event, and job training and employment assistance services will be provided to job-seekers. Also at the summit, local entrepreneurs can consult with experts to help them seek capital to effectively grow their small businesses.

"In these difficult economic times, it's absolutely essential that Hoosiers are fully informed about the job opportunities and federal resources that are available to them," Bayh said. "This fair will have a wealth of resources to help Hoosiers find and retain good-paying jobs. It will be especially useful for those who own or work at one of Indiana's small businesses, which are the lifeblood of our state's economy."

More than 25 local businesses will be on hand with an estimated 200 job opportunities available. The Terre Haute Job Fair, Job Training and Small Business Summit is co-sponsored by Indiana State University's Center for Business Support and Economic Innovation, the City of Terre Haute, the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce, the Terre Haute Economic Development Corp., WorkOne Western Indiana and the West Central Indiana Small Business Development Center in the ISU College of Business.
