The Morning Call - - BUSINESS CYCLE - By Jes­sica John­son

The lo­cal un­em­ploy­ment rate re­mained un­changed at 3.9% in July, the third month run­ning at that rate.

But if you are among the nearly 20,000 peo­ple the gov­ern­ment counts as be­ing out of work in the Le­high Val­ley, per­haps you’d like to take ad­van­tage of some free help.

The Morn­ing Call will host a ca­reer fair 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sept. 17 at Coca-Cola Park, 1050 IronPigs Way, Al­len­town.

Nearly 50 em­ploy­ers from in­dus­tries in­clud­ing machin­ery and assem­bly, pro­duc­tion op­er­a­tion, com­mer­cial driv­ing, traf­fic plan­ning, casino gam­ing, culi­nary and food and bev­er­age ser­vices, ho­tel op­er­a­tions, ware­hous­ing, ac­count­ing, nurs­ing, youth coun­sel­ing, care­giv­ing, bor­der pro­tec­tion and more will be in at­ten­dance.

Each business will have a booth set up and on-the-spot in­ter­views may be con­ducted.

For more than 20 years, The Morn­ing Call’s Ca­reer Fairs have mor­phed into an event that draws top re­gional em­ploy­ers from a va­ri­ety of in­dus­tries and pro­vides multi-re­cruit­ment so­lu­tions for busi­nesses that are look­ing for qual­ity can­di­dates.
