“The 2023 Regional Job Fairs committee is excited to host these events throughout the region to ensure accessibility for both employers and job seekers,” said Jacinda Rudolph, Grey County Economic Development Officer. “The regional job fairs attract a variety of diverse job seekers with different skills. These events are an excellent way for employers to put their business name out there and connect in person with candidates.”
