The City of Evansville is hosting a career fair this Thursday, May 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Job seekers can learn about the dozens of openings at the city within the 18 departments.

This is the inaugural job fair held by the city of Evansville. It will be held in the courtyard of the Civic Center on MLK and Main Street. Or if it rains, at the CK Newsome center.

Tamara Payne is Executive Director of the City of Evansville Human Resources.

She said job seekers can expect a diverse lineup of city departments.

“This event is not just about handing out resumes, but a chance for prospective candidates to engage directly with city department representatives, and for those candidates to showcase their skills and experience.”

She suggests that attendees come with resumes and a list of skills and certifications. “Come dressed to impress, because you will be meeting people within the City of Evansville.”

Payne says the jobs are everything from skilled, to entry level.

“Anywhere from being a bus driver, which will require a CDL – we do have some positions that will require a bachelor's degree or higher. And then some are positions that you can walk into with training.”

The city transportation department, METS, has several openings.

There are also openings at the city engineering office and Mesker Park Zoo to mention a few.
