More than 700 job seekers attended a recent career fair organized by Greater Indiana District.

“If we organize it, they will come,” said Acting Field Recruiter Mary Banks.

Attendees included professionals interested in beginning second careers, as well as newcomers like Chandler Page, 22, a recent Ball State University graduate.

“I came to the job fair looking for a new start,” said Page, whose parents met while working for USPS.

Postal Service districts regularly organize career events, part of the organization’s efforts to build its workforce and promote professional development opportunities.

The three-hour Indianapolis fair featured employees, representatives from labor unions and others who delivered information and answered questions.

Other highlights included informational videos and instructions on applying for positions through the Postal Service’s new HERO platform.
