Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo to Host Job Fair

I have a lot of fond memories of the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo. One of the earliest was growing up on the farm and driving to the “big city”. I remember turning the corner onto Van Buren from Washington. That corner bacame a visual landmark for me, a signal that we were near. Later in my life I ended up living very near there in West Central. To this day when I drive by that intersection I remember those trips as a kid. Not all of my memories of the Zoo are from my childhood. A handful of years ago I used to live off of Wells, very near to the zoo. I would sit on my porch in the summer sun, listening to the monkeys hooting and hollering from their cages. The zoo is one of the many things that makes this city great. Not only is it a favorite local attraction, but it was voted the fifth best zoo in the nation in 2009! So I gotta say, what better place to work for than one of the leading attractions in the city, Indiana, and the nation?   Information below was provided to us from the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo. “Date: Mar 8 2014 Time: 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM Do you want to work at the zoo?
