INDIANAPOLIS – U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly announced Monday that his office will host Job Seeker Workshops next month in Gary, Sellersburg and Indianapolis that are designed to help Hoosiers who are looking for work.

The events will take Aug. 12-16.

“The top issues I hear as I travel our great state is that many Hoosiers are still searching for employment and some Indiana business owners are still looking for skilled workers ready to go on day one,” Donnelly said in a statement.

“This August, my office will be hosting a series of job seeker workshops to connect Hoosiers looking for work with resources that can help in the job search and interview process,” he said. “I hope participants find valuable tools to help them succeed in finding employment, and I won’t stop until everyone in Indiana who wants a job has a job.”

The Job Seeker Workshops are designed to help attendees to improve their job search and interview skills and their resume writing. The events will include discussions lead by community leaders and industry professionals on growing job opportunities in industries such as manufacturing and technology.

Also, resources will be available to assist Hoosier veterans with their entry or re-entry into the workforce after serving our country.

The events will be:

  • Aug. 12, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. CST, North Building; Ivy Tech Community College, 1440 E 35th Ave., Gary
  • Aug. 14, 8:30 a.m. – noon, Ogle Hall, Horseshoe Foundation Assembly Center, Ivy Tech Southern Indiana campus, 8204 Highway 311, Sellersburg
