County officials said the fair will be held Nov. 3 at Osceola Heritage Park from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. They encourage anyone seeking employment to attend. 

Resume writing and interviewing skills workshops will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. until noon. Human resource employees with the county will also be there to help guests fill out job applications. 

Any employers interested in attending the fair should call county's human services department at 407-742-8423.
