INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 10, 2015) – The first-ever West Side Chamber of Commerce job fair aims to place thousands of Hoosiers into new jobs.

Organizers say they want to help the people across Central Indiana have a better quality of life and businesses to be more successful.

Over 40 potential employers will be in attendance, including AAA, Coca-Cola, Dicks Sporting Goods, FedEx, UPS, The Home Depot, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Wayne Township Schools, Regions Bank, Target, Lids and State Farm as well as employment agencies.

Jobs range from clerical to auto production line to truck drivers.

For example, the new Lowes Call Center is looking for 1,000 employees at a pay rate of $10-14 per hour.

The Honda Plant in Greensburg is looking for production associates at a pay rate over $20 per hour.

Walmart is hiring at $15 per hour.

Companies are also hiring for truck drivers, where, nationally, salaries range from $23,000-$63,000 per year.

“The best thing they can bring is a good attitude, bring an attitude that says I want to be employed,” said David Shank with the West Side Chamber of Commerce. “Dress in a professional, casual way. Dress in a way that if somebody looked you, that first impression, which is always so important, says I might want to talk to that person. And, of course, bring your updated resume.”

The West Side Chamber of Commerce Job Fair runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10, at the Pike Performing Arts Center (6701 Zionsville Road) in Indianapolis.
