Innovative Job Fair Features Local Employers and Educational Resources

Lexington, Kentucky (March 31, 2022) – Beginning Thursday, April 7, the Lexington Public Library will again provide tote bags full of employment opportunities from various employers in Greater Lexington, that are currently hiring prospective employees.  Anyone can visit any Lexington Public Library location and obtain a bag for themselves or a friend.

It’s a job fair, but all in one reusable tote. The Take Home Job Fair totes contain a variety of information focused on job-searching, skill-building, resume-writing, and overall career-preparation in addition to current job opportunities from many local employers.  The take home format offers jobseekers the flexibility to apply for their next careers at home, the library, or wherever at their convenience.

“We started the take-home model at the height of the pandemic, and we’ve found that people really enjoy this format, where they can browse materials and apply for jobs at their convenience,” said Heather Dieffenbach, Executive Director.  “Our staff is still available to help jobseekers with their resumes or to navigate an online application process, giving our customers much-needed flexibility as they search for their next career.” 

This is the third Take Home Job Fair that the Lexington Public Library has hosted since the start of the pandemic.  The previous two job fairs were well-received by job seekers and employers alike.  Since these events have been so popular, the Lexington Public Library plans to offer additional events later this year.

  • Take-Home Job Fair, beginning  April 7 while supplies last
  • Pickup at inside any LPL location during open hours on a first-come, first-served basis
  • Bag filled with items you would ordinarily receive at a job fair, featuring openings available in the Lexington area
