OSHKOSH, Wis. (NBC 26) -- For those seeking their next career opportunity, two Northeast Wisconsin organizations are set to hold job fairs open to the public.

On Thursday, April 22, the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce will commence its latest fair in the form of a drive-thru from 3 to 6 p.m. According to the chamber, 75 different companies are attending the event at 120 Jackson St.

Those heading to Oshkosh do not need to exit their car and will receive a bag of available positions around the region.

“This is a great way for job seekers to learn about the numerous opportunities available in the Oshkosh area and understand how to apply to businesses that are looking for candidates," Patti Andresen-Shew of the chamber said in a release. "The Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce is pleased to be partnering with the Fox Valley Workforce Board to assist businesses in getting the word out on companies that are hiring.”

For other Northeast Wisconsin job hunters, the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce is hosting a virtual work fair from 3 to 7 p.m. The event includes entry and management-level opportunities. Attendees and employers will speak with one another in the form of video chat breakout rooms.
