Nearly 50 area companies looking for new employees will participate in the “Woodland Works” career and job fair on Oct. 24.
The free event runs from 1 to 4 p.m. at Woodland High School (1500 Dike Access Road). It is hosted by Woodland Public Schools and the Port of Woodland.
The event started last year as a career fair for high school students, but it has grown to include a three-hour job fair for workers of all ages, according to a news release.

“Employers loved meeting the students and teaching them about potential careers. However, one asked if we could also hold a job fair so companies could meet and hire area job-seekers,” said Woodland Superintendent Asha Riley said in a prepared statement. “The combination seemed like a great idea, and the response from both returning and new employers to attend this year’s event has been fantastic.”
Job seekers should bring a resume because some employers may choose to interview potential candidates and fill position on the spot during the fair, according to a news release. A complete list of companies attending the event it attached to this article online at TDN.com.
