DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Department of Commerce says about 70 companies -- and possibly more -- are planning to take part in the agency's fourth annual statewide job fair.
The event takes place Tuesday from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. at United Wireless Arena in Dodge City. The first hour is reserved for members of the military and their families.
The Dodge City Daily Globe reports (http://bit.ly/ItOLqj ) the Commerce Department chose Dodge City to make sure that residents in the southwestern part of the state have a chance at a job fair. The previous events were held at Fort Riley and in Salina and Overland Park.
Commerce Department officials say at least 50 people were hired at last year's fair.
The agency advises job-seekers to bring a resume and dress for potential interviews.
