Spring Job Fair a Success
Twenty-seven businesses, with approximately 300 job openings, took part in the Noble County EDC's Spring Job Fair at East Noble High School on April 14. Recruiters had plenty of people to talk to, as students from East Noble, Central Noble, Smith-Green and Impact Institute participated in the event.
The job fair was also open to the general public in the afternoon.
The event was aimed at both students who are planning to enter the workforce after graduation and college-bound seniors. Even for students headed to college, getting them connected with local industries for summer work, internships or even employment opportunities after they graduate is an important step to promote local business and raise awareness about varied career options in Noble County.
The 2nd Annual Manufacturing and Education Alliance Golf Outing, Corn Hole Tournament & Luncheon is set for June 14th at Cobblestone Golf Course in Kendallville. The need for alignment of education and training opportunities with the skillsets needed in manufacturing has never been greater. This event provides a great opportunity for networking and discussion between educational entities and industry. All Noble County manufacturing companies are invited to attend
along with employees from Central Noble, East Noble,
West Noble and Smith Green School Districts.
Golf will begin at 8am with a Shot Gun start, while Corn Hole will begin at
approximately 10am. These activities will be followed by a luncheon at 12:30,
in which past and future MEA initiatives will be discussed.
We would like to encourage you to attend the luncheon
even if you cannot make the morning festivities!
The annual 4-county Wage & Benefits Survey is now expanding to include
10 counties. Select employers from Northeast Indiana are being asked
to help local economic development organizations by participating
in a comprehensive survey of wages and benefits. Industries
that complete the survey will receive the report for free!
The online survey, which will gather accurate and up to date information
about the local business environment, serves two key purposes:
-Assist existing employers in evaluating their current compensation practices against the regional market.
-Provide local economic development organizations real time data to share with business that are considering locating or expanding in Northeast Indiana.
The survey will reach manufacturing, distribution and medical device entities in
Adams, DeKalb, Huntington, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wabash,
Wells and Whitley counties. For more information on the survey or to view
