Job fair offers employment opportunities

The Burnet Job Fair will take Thursday, Aug. 31, from 4-6 p.m. at the Burnet Community Center, 401 East Jackson Street.

The event is designed to help job seekers locate good jobs, change careers or explore employment options, and to showcase Burnet to employers as a good location to live and work.

Attendees looking for a new job, a better job, or even a new career will have the opportunity to visit with more than 25 participating companies, many of which offer on-the-job training or paid training. Some companies have said they plan to hire on the spot.

The job fair will include employers looking for a range from “no experience required” to “college degree preferred,” for jobs from entry level to experienced professional positions.

Even if not seeking employment, young people are encouraged to attend and speak with employers for the learning experience and to see what might interest them in the future.

The Burnet Chamber of Commerce, Burnet Economic Development Corporation (BEDC), and Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area are hosts of the event.

“The Chamber is proud to help bring solutions to the needs of local businesses as well as to our citizens,” said Kim Winkler, executive director of the chamber of commerce. “We are excited to co-host this event, that both serves our jobseekers and shows businesses that Burnet has a skilled and eager workforce that can support them. All community members, including students, are encouraged to come out and see what these businesses have to offer.”
