VIENNA — The Parkersburg News & Sentinel will hold a Job Fair 11-2 p.m. Friday at the Grand Pointe Conference Center, 1500 Grand Central Ave. in Vienna.

More than two dozen companies will participate in the free event, some conducting interviews at the site during the fair, according to organizer Mary Jo Miller of The News and Sentinel.
