Ohio Business Expo
September 6, 2018
The Ohio Business and Career Expo is a free networking and learning opportunity geared toward job seekers and business owners who are minorities, women, or otherwise socially and economically disadvantaged. Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with employers and procurement officials from the Ohio Department of Administrative Services, Ohio Department of Transportation and other state agencies, as well as the Columbus Regional Airport Authority and more. In addition to one-on-one networking opportunities, the event also will include many workshops.

For job seekers, the expo provides the chance to explore career opportunities with nearly 50 government agencies, state universities and construction trades. In addition, participants include contractors who work on state and state-assisted construction projects and are interested in further diversifying their workforce. Representatives from construction apprenticeship programs also will be available to discuss opportunities in their fields. Workshops will be offered on resume writing, interviewing techniques and application processes.

For business owners, the expo provides networking opportunities for businesses certified through the Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) or Encouraging Diversity, Growth and Equity (EDGE) programs, as well as those interested in learning more about becoming certified. In addition to networking opportunities with purchasing officials from more than 45 government agencies and universities, workshop topics will include financing programs, registering to do business with the state and how to respond to a state bid request.
