SHARONVILLE, Ohio — Tired of your current job or out of work entirely?

More than 100 Cincinnati-area employers will be looking for hundreds of new workers later this week, in areas from sports to health care and the auto industry, in one of the biggest local job fairs of 2021.

The Superior Career Fair ties in with Cincinnati's upcoming Black Family Reunion, but the job fair is open to anyone who registers. There are no requirements that you attend the Reunion.

We spoke with several of the participating employers, which include DHL, Hard Rock Casino, Cintas, the Jeff Wyler automotive group and FC Cincinnati.

FC Cincinnati

Team president Jeff Berding said he needs entry level workers who want to advance to top jobs.

"I have a woman who is a vice president of FC Cincinnati who was a game day intern when I worked for the Bengals," Berding said. "She is now vice president of a professional sports team."

Wyler Automotive Group

Soccer not really for you? Maybe you are someone who likes cars.

The Wyler Automotive group is hiring for dozens of positions in sales, service and support.

Jeff Baioni is the lead recruiter with the Jeff Wyler automotive family, which needs sales and finance people, as well as service technicians, at almost all its dealerships.

"We'll train you in how to do it," Baioni said. "We will coach you and give you feedback, and the sky is the limit."

CTI medical trials

Prefer office work?

CTI Clinical Trial Services in Covington needs researchers, HR people, and assistants to help study new medicines -- including COVID-19 treatments -- CEO Timothy Schroeder said.

"There's a lot of organizations where you can make a good living," Shroeder said. "We feel like you are in a unique situation where you can make a difference and a good living."

The Superior Job Fair is this Friday at the Sharonville Convention Center, and while it focuses on diversity and inclusion, it is open to everyone. CLICK HERE to learn more and register.
