Summer Job Fair

On 7 June, 2022 our Veteran Event Center had its first event for veteran’s assistance. We provided the facility for The Missouri Job Center (Ozark Region) to put on a job fair for veterans. It was done in conjunction with American Legion District 17 (Mark Reed, Commander), American Legion Post 125 (Bill Roark, Commander) and Ozark Veterans Coalition (Mary Jedzinek, President). We had over 20 tables of employers looking to recruit veterans for jobs in their companies. We had an additional 10 tables of other sponsors talking with veterans and well over 30 veterans considering opportunities available to them. We had a lot of our communities largest employers represented, including; Bass Pro Shops, Prime Trucking, Cox Health, Penmac Staffing, Avid Flooring, Amazon, Central Bank of the Ozarks, Commerce Bank, T-Mobile, Missouri Department of Corrections, O’Reilly Hospitality, Springfield Public Schools, Small Business Association (SBA), Waffle House, Air Services HVAC, Pyramid Foods and Davis Electric.
The event was very successful for our first large gathering since we had over 100 people during our 4 hour program and we did not seem crowded at all. Everyone that attended seemed very impressed with our new facility.
