Connecting you with your next star employee

Posted by Jeremy Elwood on Sep 21, 2016

Is your organization looking for new employees? Do you wish you had access to the Chamber’s vast network of connections? Our upcoming Career Fair may be just the answer.

This new event is being held in conjunction with Expo: Explore, the largest business expo in the region featuring companies of all sizes displaying their products and services for hundreds of attendees—and the career fair is your chance to capture their attention. Beyond that, you’ll also be visited by eager students from Missouri State University, Ozarks Technical Community College and more, as well as job seekers from around the area.

Kristin Lochner, the Chamber’s manager of programs and special events, says the Career Fair accomplishes several goals for the organization.

“We’re always looking for ways to offer additional services for the area business community while also providing new value for our members,” she said. “Plus, it emphasizes our efforts to recruit and retain a strong workforce by encouraging young professionals to stay in Springfield after graduation.”

Tables at the Career Fair are free to any organization exhibiting at Expo: Explore; non-exhibitors can purchase a table for $100. If your organization is interested in participating in the event, contact Kim Everest at or call (417) 862-5567. Attendance at the Career Fair for potential employees is free.
