MT. STERLING, Ky. — The COVID-19 global pandemic has affected every aspect of life and work, including recruiting and job opportunity marketing. KCC-TENO partnered with Cooper Standard in Mt Sterling recently to host a drive-thru job fair, the first event of its kind for our team and our regional manufacturing partners.

Participants could learn about opportunities with Cooper, complete applications, and sit through a short screening interview all without ever having to leave their vehicles. This process helped promote safe social distancing and overcrowding. Human resources manager, Angela Howard, was pleased with the event and plans to pursue at least a dozen participants for full-time employment. She said she appreciated the partnership with KCC-TENCO in developing innovative solutions to challenging problems.
