Briefly Speaking

Levon Johnson


By Levon Johnson
Chamber President/CEO

What's Next is this week!

We have been planning this What’s Next for several months, and it is finally here! We have registered over 80 college students from Goshen College, Grace College, Indiana State University, Indiana University, Indiana University South Bend, Purdue University, and St. Mary’s College. These students will attend the Young Professional’s Ignite Dinner on Thursday evening and learn more about our community. On Friday, they will attend a Job Fair and tour the community.
We still have a few openings for the job fair… click here for more information. Targeted degrees include Accounting, Finance, Information Technology, Computer Science, Engineering and Nursing.
Have a positive and productive week.
