Dane County Job Fair Hosts 150 Employers Looking to Fill 5,000 Job Openings

MADISON – On Wednesday, March 22, the Dane County Job Center, in partnership with the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and the South Central Workforce Development Board (SCWDB), will be hosting the Dane County Job Fair from 12 – 5 p.m. at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison. The Job Fair will host approximately 150 employers with up to 5,000 jobs available.

Job fairs are valuable hiring events that enable employers to scout for talent and provide job seekers with direct access to hiring managers.

Admission is free and pre-registration is not required for job seekers. All individuals seeking employment opportunities are encouraged to dress for success, bring resume copies for distribution, and be prepared for possible onsite interviews. The Job Fair will feature a Job Seeker Prep Area for job seekers to meet with professionals to review their resume and offer tips. The Job Seeker Prep Area opens at 10 a.m.

Badger Bus will be offering free transportation to the Alliant Energy Center from the Verona, Middleton and Sun Prairie Libraries as well as the Dane County Job Center. Visit https://www.scwijobs.com/ for location pickup and drop off times. Transportation registration is not required but encouraged.

Last year, the Dane County Job Fair saw 1,200 job seekers and myriad employers with job openings in a variety of positions from entry level to management.

The Alliant Energy Center is located at 1919 Alliant Energy Way. For more information, please contact Job Service Director Joseph Ledger at (608) 242-4916 or Joseph.ledger@dwd.wi.gov or visit https://www.scwijobs.com/.
