ELKHART — High levels of unemployment in parts of 2020 are history in Elkhart County. Nine months after the local unemployment rate hit 28.6 percent, employers are now finding that recruiting can be a challenge.
That is according to Dave Follett, the business development manager at the temporary work agency Spherion of Elkhart. The organization is hosting a nationwide virtual job fair on Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Though based in Georgia, Spherion offices are locally owned, and the job fair will be “hyper-local,” so Spherion of Elkhart’s job fair will list different jobs than the job fair at Spherion of Mishawaka, Follett said.
