KOKOMO, Ind. — The 2022 edition of the Kokomo Area Career Fair, designed to open doors to the future for area college students, alumni, and the general public, is set for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, April 14, on the Ivy Tech Community College Campus at 1815 E. Morgan St.

Area employers are invited to participate to promote current job openings and internship opportunities as well as talk with job seekers about the skills needed to secure a position with their organization in the future.

Employers interested in participating should contact Theresa Murphy, vice chancellor for Student Success for Ivy Tech Kokomo, by email at tmurphy7@ivytech.edu or by telephone at (765) 252-5503.

Event sponsors include WorkOne West Central, the City of Kokomo, Indiana University Kokomo and Ivy Tech’s Kokomo Service Area.

“After offering a virtual career fair last year, we are very excited to be able to bring area employers together with students, alumni and community members looking for new career opportunities,” Murphy said. “So far, more than 60 employers have signed up to take advantage of this opportunity to showcase their business to current and future local talent.”

Tracy Springer, director of IU Kokomo’s Career and Accessibility Center, said the fair is designed to support workforce development in our community and can help students getting ready to graduate from college understand local opportunities. Participants are encouraged to “dress to impress” and to bring resumes to share with prospective employers.
