​Clark County Commissioners Jim Gibson and Tick Segerblom, the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation, and Workforce Connections One-Stop Career Centers are hosting a fall job fair, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 27, at the Clark County Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Pkwy.

 "This event will host dozens of local businesses seeking part time and full-time positions as well as new career opportunities." said Commissioner Gibson. "Top employers from throughout Clark County will be participating and are looking to hire qualified candidates."  

"We have made this Job Fair as streamlined as possible for both job seekers and employers," said Tick Segerblom. "Job seekers will enjoy easy access to large and small employers throughout Clark County that have openings and are looking to hire quickly."

More than 75 employers are expected to register to attend the 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.

"Providing employment services to Nevadans is what it's all about.  It is by working with our community partners in events such as this that we can bring employers, job seekers and varied resources together in one place and provide services that are vital to both job seekers and employers," said Dr. Tiffany Tyler-Garner, director of the Nevada Department Employment Training and Rehabilitation. 

"This job fair is an excellent example of collaboration between community partners," said Jaime Cruz, Workforce Connections executive director.  "By working together, we are creating an event that offers opportunity to anyone looking for a new job or to advance their career.  At the same time, we are offering employers a no cost opportunity to recruit new talent."
