No pre-registration is required for job seekers, and there will be private areas for on-site interviews.

“Though we are a treatment facility, this is an event for the county, to make job opportunities easily accessible on the day they end federal unemployment assistance,” said organizer Nicole Brantner.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced last month that on June 26, the state would end its participation in the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program that provided an additional $300 per week to those on unemployment.
