The Harlingen Hires Virtual Job Fair takes place 9 a.m. to noon April 29 and is currently registering job seekers. Current participating employers include those from law enforcement, government, insurance, retail, call centers, service industry, hospitality and more.
Job seekers can register online. There is no fee for either employers or job seekers to participate in the job fair. Registration takes about 30 seconds. Once registered, job seekers may upload their resume and receive further instructions on what to expect the day of the event.
“If you can text on your phone, you can register for this event – it’s really that easy,” says Workforce Solutions Cameron Business Services Manager Rey Tejada.
“The day of the event, job seekers click on the event and browse the employer booths,” Tejada continues. “There will be an option to video chat if an employer requests it. It’s as close to an in-person event as possible and just as effective.”
The Harlingen Hires Virtual Job Fair also takes into account ease of use or employers and they can schedule interviews with job seekers. Tejada added that they are still recruiting employers and if interested, employers can call 956-368-5200 ext. 432.
