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.
The Commissioners will welcome participants to the event at 8:45 a.m. during a short gathering inside Clark County Commission Chambers located at the main entrance of the Government Center.
Nearly 90 employers and more than 800 job seekers are registered to attend Friday's job fair. Organizers say job seekers should come dressed for success and bring at least 30 copies of their current resumes to give to employers participating in the fair. Registration is not required but is helpful for planning purposes. Interested attendees can register online through the Workforce Connections website at http://www.nvcareercenter.org/falljobfair2019. They also can call (702) 636-2346 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
"Residents looking for new jobs or career changes will have the opportunity to interview with representatives from multiple employers," Commissioner Gibson said. "Some firms have immediate openings and will be making hires on the spot."
Participating employers include retailers, hotels and casinos, security companies, health care providers, area police and fire departments and local government agencies. "We are happy to host this job fair, and encourage anyone interested in participating to sign up and come ready to talk to employers and prospective employees," said Commissioner Segerblom.
Workforce Connections' One-Stop Career Centers and the Nevada JobConnect program help match employers with a ready workforce. Education and training opportunities also are available.
"By working together, we are creating an event that offers opportunity to anyone looking for a new job or to advance their career," said Jaime Cruz, Workforce Connections executive director. "At the same time, we are offering employers a no cost opportunity to recruit new talent."
"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.
