Career Expo and Job Fairs
The Urban League’s Center for Workforce Development hosts annual Career Expos to help those in search of jobs, vocational development and advanced education opportunities.
Our Louisville Career Expo in March is traditionally the largest in the Kentuckian region. It provides a “one-stop” experience for individuals seeking to connect with potential employers, educational institutions, training opportunities, and other informational resources.
A smaller, but equally valuable job fair--the Community Career Expo Jeffersontown--is held in June of each year. The event attracts hundreds of jobs seekers and several dozen exhibitors.
