Commissioner Gibson, Councilwoman Schroder, State of Nevada Hosting Job Fair Oct. 9

Clark County Commissioner Jim Gibson, Henderson Councilwoman Gerri Schroder, and the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation are hosting a job fair at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at the Henderson Convention Center, 200 S. Water Street, just south of Atlantic Avenue.

"Residents in the mature Henderson neighborhoods are looking for new jobs and careers, and we are excited to offer this job fair as an opportunity to connect with a variety of local employers in a central location and in a welcoming atmosphere," said Commissioner Gibson. "I want to thank our community partners for helping us make this event possible."  

Employers and job seekers interested in attending the fair are encouraged to register through Workforce Connections at www.nvcareercenter.org/jobfair.  Registration is not a requirement but is helpful to organizers. Job seekers also can call (702) 822-4229 or e-mail cpolke@snvwc.org for additional information.  Workforce Connections One-Stop Career Center and the Nevada JobConnect program, managed through the state of Nevada, help connect employers with a ready workforce. Education and training opportunities also are available.

"The Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) JobConnect is delighted to be co-hosting this event with our community partners to benefit both job seekers and employers in the Henderson and surrounding Las Vegas valley area. With varied employers present in one location, job seekers will have the opportunity to meet, connect, and get hired, while employers are able to engage potential employees while meeting their varied employment needs," said Ron Fletcher, JobConnect Chief of Field Operations for  DETR's Employment Security Division.

More than 30 employers are registered to attend the Oct. 9 job fair including retailers, hotels and casinos, security companies, health care providers, area police fire departments and local government agencies. Job seekers are encouraged to dress for success and to bring at least 30 copies of their current resumes to give to employers participating in the fair.  The fair will offer job seekers opportunities to interview with representatives from multiple companies. 

"If you're in the market for a new job, this event will feature dozens of employers seeking employees to fill a number of available positions now," said Councilwoman Schroder.  "This job fair also is an excellent opportunity for employers to meet skilled and ambitious people looking for opportunities to excel professionally."
