Combined job fair offers prospects

History making is how one can describe the U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern’s first combined job fair held Nov. 15 at the Kazabra Club on Vogelweh.

More than 250 applicants came to check out job vacancies from 23 agencies throughout the KMC.

“It was a good experience. I got to talk to multiple companies, and I got to find out the benefits they offer,” said Sgt. Steven Blake, from the 435th Communications Squadron, who’s enlistment is up next year.

The garrison merged the Morale, Welfare and Recreation non-appropriated fund job fair, held twice a year, with the annual requirement for the Army Community Service’s Employment Readiness Program.

The fair offered more job opportunities and had more applicants applying for positions.

“I’m thrilled that so many people were able to actually come out and look at the job opportunities in the community because a lot of times people don’t know what agencies are even available to them,” said Jacqueline Boone, the garrison’s Employment Readiness Program manager.

Jeff Stabler, Non-Appropriate Fund Civilian Personnel Advisory Center director, said that restructuring in Europe, means the job fair gave people a chance to see what is  available. Twenty selections were made for MWR jobs that day.
