AkronWorks hosting job fair in May

FAIRLAWN, OH (WOIO) - Job seekers and students looking for full-time, part-time, or internship opportunities will want to attend the

Career and Internship Fair next month.

The event will be held on Wednesday, May 20 at

in Fairlawn from 3-7 p.m. Job seekers will have the chance to meet with at least 50 local companies hiring all kinds of employees.

"The

Career and Internship Fair at Summit Mall is going to offer a great opportunity for local companies to draw talent directly from both the mall crowd and prospective job seekers," says Michael Wheeler, president of Career Marketplace, Inc. "We're excited to connect hiring managers with a larger and more diverse crowd than what may be expected in a traditional job fair setting!"

Wheeler recommends that job seekers visit

prior to the event to learn what positions companies attending will be hiring and to bring numerous copies of their resumes, as employers will be eager to meet qualified candidates face-to-face.
