Putnam County government will host its first career exposition Feb. 7 from 3 to 7 p.m., at the Bureau of Emergency Services, 112 Old Route 6, Carmel.
Jobseekers and those curious about working for Putnam County are invited to explore job opportunities in government departments. Individuals are encouraged to bring their résumés, and will have an opportunity to speak with department representatives on-site.
“This is a great opportunity for Putnam residents and individuals from surrounding communities to get some face time with potential employers and their foot in the door,” said County Executive Kevin Byrne. “Putnam County government is a great place to work, with a lot of good benefits, competitive salaries, and a supportive and positive work environment. We’re always looking for new talent and there’s a lot of great career paths offered.”
Several departments will be in attendance, including the Bureau of Emergency Services, department of health, public works, Office for Senior Resources, department of social services and mental health, the sheriff’s department, the County Clerk’s Office and Department of Motor Vehicles – all of which currently have vacancies in their respective departments that need to be filled.
Staff of the personnel department will also be present to discuss application and hiring processes, upcoming civil service examinations, and the professional and personal benefits of working for county government.
While the personnel department administers civil service examinations for the county and local public agencies, not all jobs require testing. These positions will be highlighted at the expo, including both full- and part-time opportunities.
Applications can be completed on the spot.
