Job seekers are encouraged to participate in a job fair from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Commerce Center, 300 S. 3rd St., in the Paducah Bank Community Room. The Paducah Chamber has teamed with the West Kentucky Workforce Board and the Kentucky Career Center to host the job fair. Anyone seeking new employment is invited to stop by and visit with the businesses that will be represented to talk about their open positions. Approximately 20 local businesses are participating.

This is part of Small Business Appreciation Month, celebrated each May by the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce.

More than half of America's workforce is employed by a small business. With ample opportunities and an inspiring reliance on new ways to stay competitive, small businesses are a great place for employees to make a big impact.

"We are excited to be partnering with these groups to provide this job fair," said Sandra Wilson, Paducah Chamber president. "We want to provide assistance to our local businesses to recruit employees."

"A variety of employers are participating in the job fair representing multiple business industry sectors," said Mary Anne Medlock, business services representative for the West Kentucky Workforce Board. "Whether you're looking for your first job or to make a career change, there will be positions available for different skills."

The event is open to anyone looking for a new career opportunity.
