City, County, and School District of La Crosse to host collaborative career fair

LA CROSSE, Wis., (July 11, 2018) - Community members looking for a new career path will get a helping hand from three local groups. As part of their ongoing collaboration efforts, the City of La Crosse, La Crosse County, and the School District of La Crosse will be hosting a collaborative career fair on Tuesday, July 24, 2018.

To help accommodate more residents, the career fair will be held in two locations this year. Representatives from the partner agencies will first be at the Black River Beach Neighborhood Center, located at 1433 Rose Street in La Crosse, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Later that afternoon, the career fair moves to the Southside Neighborhood Center, located at 1300 6th Street South in La Crosse, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

“Our organizations have been working very closely over the past nine years in order to

maximize efficiencies, professionally develop staff, and problem-solve complex issues facing the community.” said director of human resources for the School District of La Crosse Mark White. “The career fair is another positive example of this collaboration helping our community to grow even stronger.”

Examples of positions routinely needing to be hired include teacher assistants, custodial services, substitute staff, information technology, food nutrition, nursing home services, bus operators, mechanics, and clerical support.

The career fair is free and open to the public. It will allow interested participants to meet with hiring managers and become more familiar with career opportunities offered by the School District of La Crosse, La Crosse County and the City of La Crosse.
