State of Wyoming Holds Jobs Expo

Apr 24, 2024

The WSL’s table at the State of Wyoming Job Expo had a steady stream of traffic throughout the event.

On April 16, representatives from over 20 agencies of the State of Wyoming, including the Wyoming State Library, gathered along with hundreds of community members in the Capitol Extension Hallway of the Wyoming State Capital Building in Cheyenne, Wyoming, for the 2024 State of Wyoming Jobs Expo. The event ran from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and gave participants the opportunity to explore the many rewarding career opportunities in public service.

“The event was very well organized and stayed very busy throughout the day,” said Paige Bredenkamp, eResources and School Library Consultant for the Wyoming State Library. “I was able to share job and career prep resources with so many people.”

Jessica Otto and Paige Bredenkamp were two representatives from the Wyoming State Library at the Cheyenne Job Expo event.

In all, six State of Wyoming Job Expo events were held across Wyoming on April 16. Agencies attending Casper’s expo included the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT), the Wyoming Department of Corrections (WDOC), the Wyoming Oil & Gas Conservation Commission, the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, and the Wyoming Department of Family Services. Staff from the Natrona County Library were also available at the Casper event to share resources and answer questions regarding job and career preparation.

“We had lots of interest in both LinkedIn Learning and Mometrix,” said Betsy O’Neil, Adult Services Manager for the Natrona County Library. “We had lots of other questions about how to get a library card, and using Kanopy, Libby, and other library resources.”

Tables and representatives from many State of Wyoming agencies lined the Capitol Extension Hallway at the Wyoming State Capital in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Representatives from WYDOT were also on hand at the Rawlins and Douglas 1:00-4:00 p.m. events. The WDOC was present at the afternoon events in Rawlins, Torrington, Gillette, and Douglas.

Those who attended the Job Expo were able to speak and network with representatives from the various State of Wyoming agencies regarding their agency’s guiding principles and meaningful work, the benefits of working in public service, and the latest insights and tips to enhance their resumes and prepare for interviews.
