Kansas Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins will hold a second annual Jobs Fair on Thursday, September 1st, 2011, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m  in the Agricultural Hall at the Expocentre, 17th and Topeka Blvd. The jobs fair is free, open to the public, and open to any business that is currently seeking employees.  Congresswoman Jenkins is holding the fair to help connect Kansans looking for work with businesses that are hiring.

  • State Agencies (e.g., KDOT, SRS)
  • Health Care (e.g., Blue Cross, Physicians Mutual)

    Hi, I just found out about the job fair and was wondering if there was any way to get a list of the companies that were going to be there. I’d be looking for something in the auto repair, equipment maintainance, industry maintainance fields. Thanks
