Important Notice: The statewide eligibility systems at the Job and Family Service agencies will be unavailable on August 23rd, 24th and 27th for system updates. Our agency in Wood County will be open, but we will be very limited in our ability to research information and will be unable to issue any public assistance benefits. We will still accept applications and will process them as soon as possible, but there could be a delay during this time. Please plan accordingly when making plans to call for interviews, or to request services and information from our agency. Thank you.

Seeking employees? Find them at the Job Fair!

Why spend weeks sorting through the resumes of faceless candidates followed by hours of scheduled interviews for your vacant positions? At Wood County Job and Family Services, we know that a good employee can be hard to find. That is why we are making it easier for you by coordinating several job fairs throughout the year.

At each job fair, employers can review resumes and conduct on-site interviews of all qualified candidates.  WCJFS will also provide information on local initiatives that could impact your business. Best of all, there is no cost for employers to reserve a table and attend any of our job fairs.
