Akron, OH – The 24th annual Mature Workers’ Job & Career Fair will be May 15 at the Akron/Fairlawn Hilton, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is put on by Mature Services’ Employment & Training Solutions program each year.

This event is a great place for the mature worker to find a new job. Most career fairs don’t cater to this age group so this is a wonderful opportunity for mature workers to gain employment from employers who are specifically targeting this qualified and experienced population.

As Don Zirkle, the Training and Placement Specialist for Employment and Training Solutions at Mature Services put it, "Many older job seekers worry about age bias when applying for a job, but this is one place where they know that will not be an issue because only employers who are interested in hiring older workers attend the event."

All mature workers and those employers interested in hiring mature workers  are invitedMay 15. It will be a great chance to meet prospective employees/employers, network and perhaps discover a possible new career path you’ve never considered before. Admission and parking are free.

Employers interested in registering for a booth can go online to www.matureservices.org and click on the Job Fair icon, or contact Don Zirkle at 330-762-8666 ext. 174.
