The Indiana Department of Workforce Development and OrthoWorx are planning a digital job fair for the Warsaw area on Thursday, November 16 from 2-3 p.m. EST. As one of three trial programs, it will give selected local orthopedic manufacturing employers the opportunity to virtually present information about their businesses and share brief job descriptions and job application instructions.
Participating employers include Zimmer Biomet, Paragon Medical and Precision Medical Technology. Ivy Tech Orthopedic and Advanced Manufacturing Training Center will also participate to discuss the training programs it offers to help individuals qualify for manufacturing openings.
“DWD and its local partners in Warsaw are accomplishing two goals with the launch of digital job fairs – meeting the needs of sophisticated job seekers and helping area employers find workers. We selected the communities of Warsaw, Jasper and Elkhart for the trial job fairs because they are three areas with significant, immediate workforce needs,” said DWD Chief Communications Officer Bob Birge. “With the emergence of online communications, we wanted to make this as easy as possible for everyone involved.”
Job openings presented during the digital job fair will be high demand, high wage opportunities. Interested participants may register at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1990268165352576001. The job fair will be recorded, so those who register but aren’t able to participate live will still be able to view the discussion and apply for those jobs presented by each employer. They will receive a follow up email with a link to the recording.
“Many businesses in the Warsaw region have more advanced manufacturing vacancies than they are able to fill,” said OrthoWorx Executive Director Brad Bishop. “Traditional job fairs may not work for a variety of reasons including schedule conflicts, family commitments and transportation issues. We hope this digital job fair brings Warsaw area employers and job seekers together in an effective format that saves everyone time.”
