Employers and job-seekers packed the Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg for a job fair last week, reported the Newberg Graphic newspaper. A variety of industries was represented and a steady crowd moved through the event, with more than 200 attendees within the first two hours. 

 

Opening an hour early for laid-off workers from the WestRock paper mill exclusively, the event had been moved up from January in response to WestRock’s November closure of its Newberg operation.

 

“A good percentage of these people are going to walk away with at least job interviews, if not actual jobs,” AJ Foscoli, business retention and expansion manager for Strategic Economic Development Corporation told the paper.

 

SEDCOR helped organize the event, along with the Chehalem Valley and McMinnville chambers of commerce, WorkSource Oregon, Incite, Rotary International and the McMinnville Economic Development Partnership.
