Better Together, Grace Baptist Church to host job fair in Gardner Aug. 8

Better Together is partnering with Grace Baptist Church to host a community job fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 8 in Gardner, just outside of Kansas City.

Registration is now open for hiring employers and job seekers to participate in the August event. The church-based job fairs not only connect job seekers with local employers who are ready to hire, but also provide resources to facilitate stronger connections and more hires. Free one-on-one job coaching sessions are available to job seekers to review resumes and interviewing skills, and additional services will be available onsite.

The community job fair is part of Better Together’s “Better Jobs” program, which has helped 45,000 applicants connect with employment opportunities across 24 states. At job fairs hosted by Better Together, two-thirds of attendees get a job interview, and 1 in 4 receive a job offer on the spot. Some 70% find work within six weeks.

The Aug. 8 job fair will take place at Grace Baptist Church, located at 650 E. Madison St. in Gardner. Job seekers and employers can register at BetterTogetherUS.org/Grace-Gardner or by texting “JOBS” to 844-987-3949.
