The Career Expo is an annual event hosted by KCPL, The Kentucky Career Center and The Northern Kentucky Workforce Investment Board, but it is critical this year to job seekers.

• Kentucky’s unemployment insurance changed at the beginning of 2023. It reduces unemployment benefits to 12 from 26 weeks with stricter guidelines.

• Those collecting unemployment must show proof of completing five work search requirements weekly by either applying for or interviewing for three jobs, plus attending a Career Fair, Hiring Event or job skills class for the other two requirements.
