"The Milwaukee Career Expo provides job seekers with access to many area businesses across all industries seeking to fill immediate job openings," said Secretary Allen. "I strongly encourage job seekers to register and receive their ticket for this premiere hiring event."
DWD partners with Employ Milwaukee to coordinate the Milwaukee Career Expo, providing businesses and workforce talent with added value through stronger connections to employers that are ready to hire qualified individuals for posted job openings.
