HAMMOND | Job-seekers, there is hope.

More than 75 employers are looking to hire at Purdue Calumet University's Fall Career Expo Oct. 23. The public is encouraged to attend the job fair from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Fitness & Recreation Center on the Purdue Cal campus at 2200 169th St. in Hammond.

"We will have employers on campus representing a wide range of industries and fields," Purdue's Natalie Connors said. "Some have immediate recruiting needs; others are recruiting for next spring. For the most part, they are seeking to fill positions with individuals who have or are working toward a college degree." Connors is director of career services for Purdue Cal and PNC.

The event – which is sponsored by Dwyer, All-Phase Electric Supply Co., Enterprise, Speedway and UPS – is free, but people planning to attend should pre-register. They should dress professionally and bring several copies of their resume.
