Maj. Gen. Paul Funk II on Thursday gave command of the 1st Infantry Division to Maj. Gen. Wayne Grigsby Jr. during a change-of-command ceremony.
More than 50 potential employers are scheduled to participate in a fall jobs fair at Fort Riley, an event aimed at helping veterans and others land employment and network with others.
Jeff Reade, program manager for the Employment Readiness Program at Fort Riley, says Tuesday’s jobs fair is a chance for job seekers to conduct interviews with employers, see what opportunities exist or establish initial contact with the business community.
Some of the companies expected to participate include Great Plains Manufacturing, Century Link, Wildcat Construction Co. Inc., Central Power Systems and Services and the Kansas Army National Guard.
Reade says job seekers should have their resumes prepared and conduct research about potential employers for potential interviews and networking with hiring managers and human resource departments.
