Indiana's Department of Workforce Development is looking to help displaced Celadon employees find jobs with a second virtual job fair on Wednesday.

The online job fair is only for former Celadon employees who lost their jobs when the company declared bankruptcy in early December. 

Dave Shatkowski is organizing the job fair for the the Department of Workforce Development. He says it will focus on non-driving positions in logistics, dispatch and mechanics.

“We just thought having virtual job fairs would be one thing we can do to really help these individuals land new employment, and I think many of them already have,” he says.

The companies presenting their job openings are FedEx Express, UPS, D.M. Bowman, Online Transport and Clean Harbors. Job fair participants must register online via the Department of Workforce Development’s website.
