CINCINNATI — As part of our coverage called The Rebound, which is meant to help our viewers and readers rebound economically from the coronavirus pandemic, we've been trying to find ways to help you get back to work.

One of those ways is through our Getting Back to Work in Greater Cincinnati Facebook page, where multiple employers post openings daily. If you're looking for work, definitely join the page and keep an eye on daily postings.

We have also partnered with several agencies to bring you job fairs. One of those is Cincinnati Works, a nonprofit agency that provides free lifetime career coaching and support services.

The other is Superior Career Fairs, which hosts virtual job fairs across the country and has had several local fairs since the pandemic began.

Last year, Meggan Jones took part in the fall Superior Career Fair, and landed a job at one of Cincinnati's biggest hospitals (she does not have permission to say which one).

She says the nursing job is everything she had hoped for.

"I enjoy what I do, they put smiles on my face every day, and it is a rewarding place to be."

This week, both of these agencies will have job fairs on Wednesday, April 14. If you're looking for work, mark your calendars. Here is more info about each job fair and how to sign up:
