KNOXVILLE, Iowa – Knoxville Raceway kicks its inaugural Knoxville Raceway Job Fair on Saturday. The event runs from 2-7 p.m., in conjunction with the Lucas Oil Knoxville Championship Cup Series. It’s also free kids night on Saturday.
Brian Stickel, Knoxville Raceway’s general manager and promoter, said a significant problem for many employers today is attracting skilled labor. “Knoxville Raceway hopes to connect employers to our dedicated fan base that attends our events,” he said. “We find Knoxville Raceway fans to be dedicated, passionate and fiercely loyal in all they do, (which are) ideal characteristics in any employee.”
The Knoxville Raceway Job Fair will combine a fun event with information and opportunities for employers, educators and potential employees.
Any person who applies for a job at the event is entitled to one free ticket to the races on Saturday.
Employers including Arnold Motor Supply, Vermeer, Pella Motors, Walmart, DMACC, Mahaska Bottling (Pepsi), Indian Hills CC, Quality Home Care, AIB and VanGorp Manufacturing are scheduled to attend.
