HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — The Harrisburg School District and the City of Harrisburg are teaming up to host a free business and resource fair this weekend.

According to Harrisburg City, the Contractor, Vendor, and Employment Resource Fair is a free business development and employment event that provides individuals and companies with an opportunity to seek employment and network with business leaders, hiring professionals and decision makers from the Harrisburg school district and city.

“The city of Harrisburg is open for business, whether it’s on Main Street or at City Hall,” said Mayor Wanda RD Williams. “If we’re going to encourage work in or for the city, then we need to have the funds available for anyone who wants to get involved in what we’re building. I am very excited to be working with the Harrisburg School District to ensure everyone who wants to work here has this skill.”

In addition, contractors, vendors, and suppliers have the opportunity to connect with administrators from different departments to learn more about the procurement process. According to the City of Harrisburg, individuals seeking employment with the city or school district can meet with local Human Resources staff who will meet applicants, answer questions and provide guidance on the application process.
