With more than 60 satisfied employers and more than 1,000 eager job seekers, past events produced by Record Publishing Co. and The Community Job Club of Stow were highly successful community events that helped many area residents find great local jobs working for great local employers.

Upcoming job fairs include "Careers in Caring" from 2 to 6 p.m. May 9 at NEOMED in Rootstown, and a "Hard Hat/Blue Collar" job fair planned this fall. Look for more information on these events in this newspaper.

Northeastern Ohio employers have noted a shortage of workers in some industries including health care, skilled trades, drivers, customer service and construction fields and participate in widely promoted job fairs like Game ON! to help find qualified workers.

Dix newspapers including the Record-Courier (Portage County), The Daily Record (Wooster) and The Review (Alliance) as well as the Dix community newspapers (Aurora Advocate, Cuyahoga Falls News-Press, The Streetsboro Gateway News, Hudson Hub-Times, News Leader, Stow Sentry, Tallmadge Express and Twinsburg Bulletin) will promote the job fair and drive job seekers to the event.
