More than 40 employers slated to attend West End Plaza job fair

SALISBURY — There are 45 local employers signed up to attend a large community job fair at West End Plaza on Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Organized by the Rowan County Economic Development Commission, Rowan County Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Development Authority and Miller Davis Agency, the job fair is designed to give employers a way to connect with job seekers. Rod Crider, president of the Rowan EDC, says local companies are having trouble filling a multitude of vacancies, from entry-level jobs to management positions.

Companies attending the fair will offer a number of incentives, including child care assistance, tuition and signing bonuses. Employers also will be prepared to offer jobs on-site. In addition to the incentives offered by companies, the Tourism Development Authority will raffle off four $250 Amazon gift cards to event attendees who complete an on-site scavenger hunt.
