COSHOCTON — The story related to jobs in Coshocton the past year has been there are plenty positions open, but nobody to fill them. 

An employment expo by Ohio Means Jobs on Wednesday at Lake Park was not only about linking employers and employees, but allowing businesses to network with each other. The annual event was expanded this year into a family affair with activities and food by the child support division of Coshocton County Job and Family Services and the Coshocton County Fatherhood Initiative. 

The expo featured 57 vendors, which along with local employers also included some colleges and military recruiters. Shanna Stanton, business coordinator for the local branch of OMJ, said seven companies were only able to send applications and couldn’t staff a table because they couldn’t spare the manpower.
