“It’s great to have that first experience being able to go face-to-face, shake somebody’s hand, tell them about what you do, find out about what they love to do and see where there’s a good connection,” said Patrick Kisgen, President, C + H Precision.

Patrick Kisgen is the President of C + H Precision, one of the employers at the fair. He says, that one-on-one time with what could be his future employers, is why fairs like these are important.

“We’re always trying to bring in the best and brightest talent and this area is robust with that,” said Kisgen.

The Development Authority of Bryan County was one of the hosts of the event.

According to development authority data, Bryan County’s labor force is expected to increase by more than 4,600 from 2023 to 2028.
