Mesa County Workforce Center’s Annual Job Fair is Tomorrow Feb 5

Feb 4th @ 10:52 am in EEO, Expo, Local Events, News, People, Public Service by Scott Staley

The Mesa County Workforce Center is once again sponsoring their annual Jump Start Job Fair. This will be the second year that the fair will be held at the Double Tree by Hilton. Last year, over 1500 job seekers attended the fair and employers were pleased by the quality of those attendees. This year, the Workforce Center has seen even greater interest from businesses that are seeking to hire.

The Workforce Center has listened to the needs of the businesses and expects the event to be highly successful. Boasting the highest number of actively hiring employers attending in years, the Workforce Center has over 40 employers committed. Employers from a variety of sectors will be in attendance – including Energy, Healthcare, Hospitality and more!

Because of Mesa County’s continued competitive job market and unemployment rate at 8.6% (higher than the state and national average), the Workforce Center encourages all job seekers to come to the event well-prepared. Job seekers should be dressed appropriately and should be bring plenty of copies of their resumes. The Workforce Center offers resume prep assistance and high quality resume paper for job seekers to print off their copies.

Where: The DoubleTree by Hilton, 743 Horizon Dr, Grand Junction, CO
When: Tuesday, February 5th, 2013 from 9am – 4pm
