Pennsylvania CareerLink Job Fair 2017

Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex

As part of their ongoing efforts to assist area workers and employers, state Sen. Don White, R-Indiana, and state Reps. Dave Reed, R-Indiana; Jeff Pyle, R-Ford City; and Cris Dush, R-Brookville, will co-host a job fair from 11:00 a.m. (Veterans admitted at 10:30 a.m.) to 4 p.m. on May 4 at the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex, 711 Pratt Drive, on the IUP campus.


The fair was previously held at the S&T Arena.. Reed says the move to the KCAC will allow the job fair to have more involvement from the IUP community, and perhaps could keep them living and working here.  And coming right before graduation, Senator White says it’s a prime opportunity for local companies to meet with motivated individuals. IUP President Michael Driscoll says he’s pleased that the event is moving to campus, which offers the resources of the university’s Career and Professional Development Center.


In addition to White, Reed, and Dush, other sponsors include the Indiana office of PA CareerLink, the county commissioners, and the Chamber of Commerce.  CareerLink’s Kevin Lazor says they are hopeful that the change in venue will give graduating seniors and local job seekers the opportunity to find a career and stay in the region.
